Contact: Hanna M. Greer, 525-5848

Franklin County has withstood the national recession better than most communities because we have maintained a focus on economic development and jobs. Separate reports show that the Arena District directly impacts ten-thousand jobs and is an economic development engine for the entire region.

The public-private solution brought forward yesterday is the result of nearly two years of due diligence and assures the future of the Arena District’s economic impact for decades to come.

We remain committed to protecting County revenues by investing in economic development and job creation and retention efforts.
