EDC and Partnership To Meet Thursday Night
The Cocke County Economic Development Commission and the Cocke County Partnership will be meeting Thursday night at Newport City Hall. Lots going on so far in 2023 as things are developing with the new Smoky Mountain Innovation Park as November say a couple site visits by interested parties. More site visits are expected over early part of this year. Also the Cocke County Partnership continues to coordinate with consultants to develop a marketing and branding plan for the I-40 corridor that will be used to promote using Cocke County exits off of I-40 as preferred travel routes the Gateway to the Smoky Mountains and popular destinations around the area. They are also exploring new marketing strategies to further the Adventure Side of the Smokies brand and how to connect to outdoor recreation enthusiasts vacationing to the Smoky Mountain region. That meeting of the EDC and Partnership Thursday night begins at Newport City Hall at 5:30.
