Cherokee County is perfectly positioned for job growth, in fact the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) projected that Cherokee will lead the Metro Atlanta area in job growth through 2040.
Northside Hospital owns property between Highway 20 and Highway 140. They have plans to build a complex of office buildings that will be filled with doctors’ offices and specialty practices like their other locations in Forsyth and Atlanta. That will lead to new businesses in the healthcare industry moving to Cherokee County.
I fully support economic development growth; it is vital to our future and our quality of life. Bringing new quality jobs here to Cherokee will allow more of our residents to live and work here in the county increasing their quality of life. They will spend less time commuting and have more time to spend with their family. Increasing economic development will also help the county balance the tax digest reducing the burden on residents. The additional tax revenue will allow the county to complete much needed road improvement projects sooner.
The Cherokee Office of Economic Development (COED) has had an impressive history of success. I will support the board members and employees of the Office of Economic Development with the tools that they need for their continued success.
