The Lawrence County Redevelopment Commission is hoping the facility will spur other Economic Development in the Mitchell Industrial Park.

 The Lawrence County Redevelopment Commission approved a resolution back in June of 2023 to move forward with a proposed $5.1 Million Shell building to be constructed in the Mitchell Industrial Park.

The location will be by the intersection of Doc Hamilton Boulevard and Meridian Road in the Mitchell City limits.

Lisa Lee, Ice Miller presented to the Lawrence County RDC during a public hearing prior to the RDC on meeting on the proposed project for a Build, Operate, Transfer Model.

The project has been awarded to GM Development LLC. Corporation and Runnebohm Construction on the project by the Lawrence County RDC.

The building itself will be a total of 50,000 square feet metal fronted building on approximately 15 acres.

" I think going with the metal structure vs, concrete matches better with the industrial park where we are going to put it," said Wally Branham Lawrence County RDC member.

The building will have four docks, as well as an overhead door. The parcel of land the City of Mitchell will turn over to the RDC will allow the building to expand up to 200,000 sq. feet if expansion of a business is needed.

Details of the groundbreaking will be coming at a later date.
