All interested persons please take notice that a public hearing will be held by the Granville County Board of Commissioners pursuant to N.C.G.S. 158-7.1 on June 7, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. or shortly thereafter in the auditorium of the Granville County Expo and Convention Center, located at 4185 US Hwy 15 South, Oxford, North Carolina.
The purpose of the public hearing is to hear the views of the public on aiding and encouraging the location or expansion of industrial facilities in Granville County, Project Home, specifically as follows: a relocation and expansion of existing manufacturing company to Granville County. The company will invest approximately $2.1 million and will create 147 new jobs over three years and up to 500 by 2026. The maximum cost of the County-funded improvements will be up to $200,000 in accordance with the County’s funding policy to serve as the 50% match towards the $400,000 One NC Grant awarded by The North Carolina Department of Commerce.
This project will be funded with general County operating funds. The cost to the County of the County-funded capital improvements will be offset by new tax revenues generated by the company’s capital investment in the project over a period not to exceed five years.
The public benefits to be derived from the making of these improvements include the development of industrial properties which will increase the County’s tax base to better provide for County services, and to increase employment opportunities within the County.
All interested citizens are invited and urged to attend.
Debra A. Weary
Clerk to the Granville County Board of Commissioners
