Gov. Beshear Announces $250,000 Grant Awarded to Knox County To Further Site and Building Development

 Gov. Andy Beshear announced further investment in Team Kentucky’s site and building development efforts with Knox County receiving approval for a $250,000 grant. The Knox County Industrial Authority is seeking to purchase approximately 1,550 acres with plans to develop a new business park. With the Southern Kentucky Business Park nearing full capacity, officials say it is vital for the community to establish a new park to recruit business and industry to the region. The new project was approved for a $250,000 grant during last week’s Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority meeting. Knox County Fiscal Court will contribute an additional $6,800 toward the project to conduct due diligence at the site.
