FORT VALLEY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) — A 178-acre lot outside the city limits of Fort Valley will soon see development.

B.J. Walker, executive director with the Development of Authority, says the idea came from an Atlanta business person who wants to expand their business to a place without a lot of traffic.

Walker says the project begins in 2022. The hope is to have 100 acres for businesses and 50% green space.

“The project could create over 1000 jobs,” said Walker.

Walker says he wants the business to align with a family-type atmosphere at an Eco Park that provides green space.
