THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) - Thomasville Payroll Development Authority members are focused on finding tenants for their business park.

Tells us more about how PDA officials plan to attract businesses to the Rose City.

Currently the PDA has three prospects for the red Hills Business Park.

Lots there range from a couple of acres to up to 90 acres. Red Hills could accommodate up to 58 businesses.

Call centers, small distribution businesses, light manufacturing, and business offices are the ideal businesses for the park.

PDA Executive Director Shelley Zorn says it's very hard to get people to look at just land. Zorn says that could be the reason they have more interest in the caterpillar building as of now.

The business park was a $5 million investment, including a $500,000 grant from the One Georgia Authority, and the rest of the funding is from special purpose local option sales tax revenue.

PDA officials hope once one business opens its doors at the business park it will create a domino effect and attract other prospects.
