(NASHVILLE) — State Senator John Stevens (R–Huntingdon) announced today that the Bridges Site in the Benton County Industrial Park has been named part of the Select Tennessee program by the Department of Economic and Community Development.
The Select Tennessee program was launched in June 2012 with the goal of helping Tennessee communities prepare available sites for investment and expansion. The program sets a consistent and rigorous standard upon which companies can rely in making critical location decisions.
“The Select Tennessee program assists companies looking to expand to our area by preparing potential business sites to meet the immediate needs of their operations,” said Senator Stevens. “I am thankful to the Department of Economic and Community Development for their commitment to Benton County, and I look forward to working with officials over the coming months to make this important designation a success.”
There are now 22 Select Tennessee Certified Sites available in 16 different counties across the state.
The Select Tennessee program accepts applications twice a year, with the next round of applications being due by January 17, 2014. However, interested communities can begin the formal application process at any time by sending in their letter of intent to [email protected].
