The momentum of 2015 continues with BIG news and opportunity for Milledgeville-Baldwin County. The Development Authority of the City of Milledgeville & Baldwin County (DAMBC) have unveiled a project in this community many years in the making, Georgia’s newest mega-site.
The site, named the Sibley-Smith Industrial Park, is around 1,657 acres located in Baldwin County, Georgia, south of Milledgeville, and is zoned heavy industrial (HI). It is situated along US Hwy 441 bypass approximately 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) north of the US Hwy 441 business & US Hwy 441 bypass intersection. Norfolk Southern Rail and utilities are already on site.
“We are now officially home to the newest mega site in Georgia,” says DAMBC Executive Director Matt Poyner. “The dynamic collaboration of our City and County leadership, to help make this project happen, speaks to their commitment to a legacy of opportunity, job growth, and economic development in this community.”
This development by the DAMBC is a milestone to enhancing the attractiveness of Milledgeville-Baldwin County to prospective industry. In addition to rail and utilities already on the site, GRAD Certification is in process to be complete Spring 2016. Once certified, the site will have a significant marketing advantage because prospective companies know GRAD certification means extensive due diligence has been completed, and the ability exists to be up and operational in a much faster time frame.
