We are celebrating another productive week here in Northeast Kentucky. The Ashland Alliance welcomed New Life Insurance to their new Downtown Ashland location on the corner of 16th and Winchester. Their Ribbon-cutting was a fabulous opportunity to see the renewed property of the Business Club Facility and to meet Stephanie Osterkamp and her dedicated team of insurance professionals.
This week also marked the collaboration of five counties, EastPark Board, and the Ashland Alliance on a $750.000.00 Grant (Kentucky Product Development Initiative) award to purchase the land and buildings formerly sold for the Unity Aluminum project. This grant, along with a $750,000.00 donation from Steel Dynamics, gives EastPark the largest spec building available in the State of Kentucky, along with 240 acres of certified development land with no debt.
The leadership of our two counties (Boyd and Greenup), along with Carter, Lawrence, and Elliott, has prepared this community for new opportunities to come. I also want to publicly thank the Chairman of EastPark, David Michael, for his leadership and support to help get this done.
It is a great week when we welcome new businesses to our area and bring the tools to the table for economic development for the next decades. Together with our partners, we can build a story of success.
Enjoy your weekend and your family. We appreciate each of you and look forward to supporting your business for years.
