Nothing imminent on new home for OC EDC

January 29, 2013

The possibility of a building inside the Golden Corner Commerce Park housing a library and new county economic development headquarters was raised during a meeting last night in Seneca of the Oconee Library Board of Trustees. Library trustee John Adams indicated that the library system’s goal toward its first branch serving southern Oconee County could be facilitated by an arrangement with the county’s Economic Development Commission. Adams said the EDC’s updated strategic plan contains the possibility of a $750 thousand to $1 million EC office inside the GCCP. But today Richard Blackwell, EDC executive director, said such a building is “long-term” and he said his office is faced, for now, with other priorities. The EDC headquarters are now located in a two-story, old house on Walhalla’s E. Main Street. Its rooms do not comfortably accommodate meetings of more than 20 people, according to Blackwell.
