Visit Industrial Park 
Members from Choctaw and Webster county and municipal governments and economic development boards visited the Grenada Business and Technology Park located off I-55 north of Grenada on Thursday, June 29. Participants of the visit were able to learn about the planning, construction, funding and implementation of the project. A tour of the park and the 80,000 SF speculative building constructed in the park was given by Ms. Janie Mortimer of the Grenada County Economic Development District.

Thank you to the Grenada Economic Development District and Grenada County Board of Supervisors President Darryl Robinson for touring and sharing with us the story and investment made in the Grenada Business and Technology Park.
Support the future growth of The Enterprise
The Enterprise is seeking external funding and kicking off a fundraising campaign. We will focus this next year on making improvements to existing industrial property and planning long-term to acquire new property for industrial development. We will take a closer look at workforce development in our area to strengthen training programs and access to resources for employers and job applicants to improve and expand their skill set. All while continuing to market and build relationships to increase knowledge of The Enterprise to external partners. Your support is needed to continue to build off the success of the last year.
