Published 9:40 pm Friday, April 26, 2013

The city of Opp, the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama and the Covington County Economic Development Commission will announce its Advantage Site designation for the Opp Industrial Park.

An Advantage Site designation confirms that documentation critical to the site selection process is ready for prospective industry.

It is a voluntary program that allows communities to demonstrate that due diligence has been done on the designated site.

Opp Mayor John Bartholomew said that Opp is one of only 39 advantage sites in the state.

“That means we are shovel-ready for any company that wants to come,” he said. “This is very big news, and we are very excited. It puts the city in very good position.”

The event will be held at 11 a.m. at the spec building located in the Opp Industrial Park behind the Best Western off of the Bypass.
