Recommending a third spec building
A group of Oconee County officials and citizens have a consensus toward an economic development strategy. The county’s capital projects advisory committee recommends construction of Oconee’s third speculative building, as soon as it is practicable. County councilman Paul Corbeil, the committee chairman, says the recommendation will go to the county planning commission for further consideration. County leaders are heartened by the attraction of a Georgia maker of aerospace components that recently announced it’s buying Oconee’s second spec building, located in the county commerce park, for the purpose of relocating its operations. The county leaders stress the availability of “product” when it comes to luring development.
