Members of the Development Authority of Jones County continue to plan for the future of Griswoldville Park and economic development for the county.

Authority Executive Director Kathyjo Gordon began the Feb. 10 meeting with a report about recent sales team training that took place at the office of the Middle Georgia Regional Commission.

Gordon said the training took place Jan. 22, and she attended with Authority member Randy Griffin and Board of Commissioners Chairman Preston Hawkins. She said one of the benefits of the training was meeting other sales teams from the region.

Gordon said Jim Lovett of Georgia Power conducted the training and went over different types of economic development. She noted that when a prospect shows interest in locating to an area, they begin a process of elimination. The last county not eliminated wins the project.

The director said planning is important and the Development Authority has done its due diligence.
