GADSDEN CO. Fla. (WCTV) -- From the Gulf to Gadsden. That's what leaders are calling a path to opportunity.
State and local officials made the announcement Tuesday morning in Hosford, Florida.
They announced the Gulf to Gadsden Freight Logistics Zone.
This is land available in Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin, and Gulf counties that will be marketed to attract new businesses. These are businesses associated with freight transportation that would be able to access areas outside of the U.S. Local officials say they would be bringing in local jobs and boosting the economy.
Establishing this zone can provide the counties with priority for funding and incentives from the State when pursuing certain projects within the zone.
