Interesting news story - the new guy helped create 6000 new jobs in Atlanta. Will be intriguing to see where he finds his focus for Wash County.

Also saw in the Press that the JC Commission is in the process of choosing new members for the JCDA.. Some of you out there with great suggestions should consider throwing your hats in the ring.. I do believe it is a more viable org than in the past! I sure do hope so..

Wow! I didn't know this was coming. I feel like this could mean very good things for Washington County. I feel like we should be competing more heavily for industry associated with the TVA and VW in Chattanooga. Gotta get that Bosch building filled!

Yes, it seems to bode well for the area - if these folks perform well and aren't just part of another city/county bureacracy. It will be interesting to hear more as they begin work at these new jobs.

Not really part of the subject of this thread but a close subject near and dear to the hearts of some of us: relooking at and rethinking urban and suburban areas and what to do about all the empty big box stores - how to better utilize them. If these new folks can learn from what is happening other places, maybe JC can truly become more progressive (from the points of few of some of us). For those who have time, this is a fascinating video demonstrating how suburban and urban areas can be "retrofitted" for today's and tomorrow's challenges - such as energy efficiency, etc.
(I found this on the train depot FB page). Good stuff!
