Big Plans for Little Canoe Creek
The Etowah County Commission hosts Alabama Department of Commerce Director of Business Development Ted Clem at a work session. Today, he spoke to the commission about the economic venture of a megasite development for Little Canoe Creek. Ted Clem is a senior project manager. He works with communities as the state agency targets more new jobs and investment. The Commission’s original plan to develop the site at certain acreage has expanded and they are now considering larger options which include a small industrial park or mega sports complex. The commission voted seven years ago to purchase the first 200 acres and gradually increased the acreage to 900 acres. About 100 more acres is needed before it can be named as a megasite for the state development projects. The site will be accessible from Steele Station Road, U.S. Highway 11 and by rail.
