Echo Hills gets a new name!
In the end, Oconee County Council acceded to the wishes of its administrator in renaming the Echo Hills Industrial Park on n. highway 11. The council last night was handed a list of 10 suggested names—the result of a community solicitation as to what better to call the county’s newest economic development park. Moulder’s preference of Oconee Industrial and Technology Park” won out over the rest of the field that included suggestions such as Golden Oconee Industrial Park and Foothills Industrial Park. According to the thinking last night, better to ascribe a name which is distinctive and won’t be confused with the names of the other economic development parks: Golden Corner and Oconee Commerce.
