    2017 Sees Spike in Development

    Growth among local cities and industrial centers has spiked in 2017, according to Carroll County Chamber of Commerce President Daniel Jackson.

    “We’ve seen more growth so far in 2017 than we did in all of last year,” said Jackson. “We are mainly seeing that growth in and around our large municipalities, and our industrial centers. In general terms this is very good news for our county as a whole. The potential for our county is as strong now as it’s been in several years.”

    Jackson said the county is witnessing development in retail, restaurants, hotels, and other areas.

    “Retail in Carrollton, Villa Rica, and Bremen has jumped quite a bit,” said Jackson.

    Jackson also noted that Colorado Premium is set to open in the fall.

    “As for the industrial sector, we have Colorado Premium getting ready to officially open,” said Jackson. “A lot of our industries are quietly in expansion mode, and we have several new industries looking at possible locations around the county.”

    He also commented on growth in the county’s schools.

    “We’ve held multiple ribbon cuttings already this year for our local schools who are building new facilities,” said Jackson. “The University of West Georgia’s enrollment is at an all-time high, and West Georgia Technical College’s numbers are over 7,000 students.”

    Jackson described the county’s current and future overall economic status as “healthy.”

    “It’s been really healthy thus far in 2017, and it looks like it will be that way for the foreseeable future,” said Jackson. “There’s interest and activity scattered all throughout our county. We expect good things to continue for Carroll County.”
