EDC Annual Meeting

The Economic Development Corporation of Paragould held its annual meeting on May 25, 2021. Members were updated on the current economic outlook of Paragould and heard from Guest Speaker, Randy Zook, of the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce. The EDC also made two announcements that will continue to keep Paragould "Moving in the Right Direction."

As Randy Zook stated in his speech, "you guys in Greene County just get it!" The EDC released drawings of a proposed Farmers' Market that will be built in Downtown Paragould as well as renderings for an innovation center. The innovation center is still in planning stage but plans include shared workspaces, meeting space, makers' spaces, an industrial kitchen that can be used by the community, a technology center and much more! Stay tuned for more exciting news for the future of Paragould!
