I-16 Corridor Alliance Pools Resources to Attract Growth

This kind of coordination and planning will hopefully bring more industry to the many counties along Interstate 16. Kudos and best wishes! From today’s Courier-Herald of Dublin:

Twelve counties linked by Interstate 16 believe there is strength in numbers.

The newly formed I-16 Corridor Alliance pools the resources from these 16 counties to attract the attention of the Georgia Ports Authority and those who have a hand in placing distribution, warehousing and transportation centers along the corridor, which stretches from Macon to Savannah.

“Any business we bring in along the corridor helps people through the creation of jobs and opportunities,” said Judy Sherling, executive director of the Jeffersonville-Twiggs Economic Development Authority and president of the alliance. “It helps the tax base of the counties.”

    Why do they have to call it a “corridor” all the sudden? This is globalist lingo. People in the “business community” (read: free trade ect… and not necessarily for small business and competition) who support the NAFTA Superhighway have taken it upon themselves to rename some of our Interstate Highways “corridors”. Well if they put up toll roads I’m boycotting Savannah. It’s the least I can do.

    “Coordination and planning”?? Why doesn’t private industry simply focus on creating a better product?
