Bay EDA having busy year

PANAMA CITY, Fla. - The Bay County Economic Development Alliance is working on 25 projects for 2018. Six of those projects may be announced within the first quarter of the new year, EDA President Becca Hardin said Jan. 10 at an alliance meeting. Among the six is Project G-Force, which involves an aviation manufacturing company in the process of deciding to locate in Bay County or one other site. Hardin expects a decision by the end of January. The project would bring about 50 jobs, and represent a $20 million investment. Another, called Project SoHo, is at the irport campus and would represent a $25 million investment and an estimated 105 jobs. (Source: News Herald, 01/10/18)
