HOUSTON, Miss. (WCBI) — A number of Chickasaw County businesses received recognition Tuesday night for adding to the growth of the community. The Chickasaw Development Foundation and Main Street held their annual banquet in Houston. Economic development leaders say one of the biggest projects on the horizon will be the development of a mega site in Okolona.
“The mega site is sponsored by TVA. It’s inspected by TVA,” said John Waldon, Chairman of the CDF. “Chickasaw County of course has options on the land and once TVA has approved the site as a mega site then it’s onward in the recruiting of industry into this Chickasaw area.”
The Tanglefoot Bicycle trail, which stretches from Houston to New Albany, was also recognized Tuesday night.
