On Monday, The Alliance in Corinth announced it had finalized the purchase of 420 acres:
This property, which parallels U.S. Highway 72, will serve as the new industrial park setting for Corinth and Alcorn County. Lowell Hinton, President of the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors said, “This 400 plus acres, with its access to rail, highway and utilities, arms us with the product we need to better compete for job creation projects in the future.”
The purchased property, located east of Corinth, gives The Alliance two 100-acre sites with rail access. The property is traversed by Norfolk Southern’s Crescent Corridor main-line as well as a short-line railroad known as the Redmont Railway. Such assess gives potential tenants of the site access to domestic locations as well as the global marketplace. “This is a significant step in the right direction in our quest for industrial recruiting. This is vital to our community” said Tommy Irwin, Mayor of the City of Corinth.
Gary Chandler, President of The Alliance, stated, “This new property is a “game-changer” for our community. We are very excited about the potential for growth that this new property provides our future generations.”
