Initial work for new megasite underway, WCBI reports

Mississippi is home to a number of economic development supersites that have been key components in the state’s efforts to land new manufacturers, including Nissan’s auto assembly plant in Madison County and Toyota’s facility under construction on the Wellspring site at Blue Springs in northeast Mississippi.

The megasite factor has also been in play as a diverse array of manufacturers have opened in the Golden Triangle over the last decade, and WCBI-TV reports that work is now underway on developing a new site in Oktibbeha County:

"More than 1,100 acres known as the Pilkington Property along Hickory Grove Road and Highway 82 in eastern Oktibbeha County could become the next big industrial site in the Golden Triangle," Greater Starkville Development Partnership CEO Jon Maynard recently told the TV station.

It’s always good to see economic development coverage in the news, and this story is another reminder that Mississippi is a great place to do business.
