DEVELOPMENT SITE EVALUATORS COMING TO GREENVILLE
Some visitors are coming to Greenville soon, as the selection of the possible new industrial project nears, as a group of sight evaluators will soon be arriving for a visit to Greenville. Greenville is one of two cities still in the running for the industrial project. WGEL spoke with Assistant City Manager, Lisa Stephens, about the visit. Lisa said she has been working on this project for the past year and a half and she is very excited that the project has come this far. The impact of the new 125 to 200 million-dollar investment development could create 125 to 200 new permanent jobs and 600 temporary construction jobs. The visitors, who she expects next week, include a team of engineers, a company executive, and site consultants. Stephens wanted to thank the Village of Smithboro for their cooperation, and she believes this is a very good step in the right direction of landing this project. Greenville is one of only two remaining sites for this industrial project.
