Cocke County Partnership
The Cocke County Partnership. Economic Development Commission was told Thursday that the Loves Travel Center planned for the 432 exit of I-40 has the green light from state officials for tax increment financing(TIF)and the site plan also has been approved. The Tennessee Department of Transportation also has approved the planned traffic configuration which will include a traffic light at the Generation Drive intersection, however development of a Corridor plan may result in further traffic pattern changes. Partnership President Lucas Graham said the CEO of Eternal Beverage will be in Newport next week to finalize the purchase of acreage in the Highway 25E Industrial Park. A master design plan is being developed for the park, stemming from the Eternal Beverage project. Graham said a manufacturing firm has submitted an offer on a building but it has not yet been accepted. A distribution/warehousing firm has leased a local building and is preparing to make an announcement in that regard. And half a dozen other projects, with a variety of offerings including a welding firm, are continuing to progress. Cocke County Mayor Crystal Ottinger also announced that repairs have been made to rafting ramps that were damaged by February flooding. Rafting season is to kick off on April 30.
