As our county was doing so well before the recession we were fortunate to have been afforded an extra margin of error, a cushion that gave us extra padding to soften and lessen our economic blow compared to other counties like Jefferson Co. Which should translate into a speedier recovery for St. Clair County over those counties less prepared.
We all applaud the growth along the I-20 corridor from Moody to the Coosa River and all places in between. Mr. Smith mentioned that only 50-60 acres of land are left in the industrial park where the new hospital and V.A. facility is located and that St. Clair County needed more land for development.
If the I-20 corridor of St. Clair County is running out of land this quickly then might I help our county by suggesting that St. Clair County develop the wide-open spaces along the I-59 corridor in St. Clair County?
