WEST POINT, Miss. (WCBI) – The Golden Triangle’s next big economic deal with be unveiled Tuesday (10/30).

West Point, Clay County and the Columbus Lowndes Development Link will officially unveil the 1100 acre Prairie Belt megasite at 5:30 at the Civic in West Point.

The site, which sits on the northern edge of West Point, joins the Global Aerospace Park in Lowndes County in giving the area two major locations to lure potential industries.

“Prairie Belt because there are so many people around here this is referred to as The Prairie, part of the Prairie Belt. The Powersite because, you know what, there are only a few megasites left in the U S Southeast that are not taken for or are not spoken for. And out of all of them, none of them have the electrical power that we can deliver,” says Ron Maloney, Clay County LINK coordinator.

The event is open to the public.
