巴拉德经济发展 & 工业发展

关于手机版经济发展 & 工业委员会

巴拉德经济发展 & 工业委员会 was formed as a nonprofit private corporation by a group of 手机版 Citizens in 1982.

The Board formed to assist start-up businesses by capitalizing upon government incentives to promote 手机版经济 Development. 董事会有 successfully assisted several businesses in Ballard county to start and employ 手机版 citizens. The Board used the money recaptured by those loans and purchased property in Kevil, KY to start the West KY Technology Park which led to the construction of the first building that housed contractors employed by the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant. 在第一座建筑完工后, the Board constructed two additional buildings for contractors who were employed by DOE to remediate in support of the deactivation of the plant.

Eventually the Board accomplished its primary mission as the Board sold the first property to Kevil Tool and Die.  Kevil Tool and Die has been a local employer for many years, dating back to when WESTVACO came to 手机版.  Because of their success in the local area, Kevil Tool & 戴尔能够扩大规模,雇佣更多的人.

The Board’s success with Kevil Tool and Die and government contractors, led to the construction of New Haven Assisted Living and the day care facility. 目前, the Board owns the day care building 并继续 help the current renter with finances in order to retain this much needed service available for our citizens, 这样他们就可以工作来养家糊口.

The Board obtained PACRO monies that DOE granted in order to construct a spec building which is home to Two River Fisheries today.  Two Rivers Fisheries received initial funding assistance from the Board for five years to present times.  到今天为止, Two Rivers Fisheries is a thriving strong local employer who continues to grow the number of employees every year not to mention the tremendous help with the Asian Carp population issue currently plaguing our local and regional waters.

The Board purchased the building at 297 KY Ave in Kevil, KY after Flour Corporation was awarded the remediation, 监测, 以及维护合同.  The property was used by Fluor as they transitioned as the new DOE contractor and resided in 手机版. The building leased by Fluor during the time of transition is now the office for the Board as well as three other businesses.  The facility offers a 2000+ square feet event center which is available for meetings, 培训, 招待会, 等. The facility amenities even includes a kitchen for caters to utilize to serve and keep food warm after bringing to facilities.

When the organization that built and operated the Farmers Market in LaCenter decided they could no longer support the market, the Board assumed the title to the property and paid all expenses associated with the property.  The Board now offers the use of the property for free to the citizens of the county an even maintains a year-round “porta potty” for all to use.

When the Ballard Bottoms Tourism Council (BBTC) started to form, the Board contributed monies to pay for expenses and eventually purchased the old Masonic Lodge Building from the 巴洛 General Baptist Church located in 巴洛; thereby allowing the BBTC as well as anyone else who needs a meeting room to have a facility to use.  The Board financially supports all fundraisers of the BBTC to include the Waterfowl Festival.

董事会有, 并继续, financially supported the four river counties attempts to regionalization with the establishment of KYGRRO, which is an organization that promotes small business and tourism in all four counties.

Within the last 3 years the Board has been the leader in promoting the WAVE Organization, 西肯塔基地区河港管理局, AG日和汇流.   前面提到的, are the forerunners with placing our region “on the map” to attract new businesses which, 反过来, create jobs and give the option to our young people to stay in Ballard county to live, 工作, 养家糊口.

The Board of the Ballard EDC is committed to the citizens of 手机版 并继续 leverage the ideas and wisdom of the founders of the Board, 通过赠款筹集的资金, 租赁, 以及对董事会的捐款.  The Board’s purpose is to create a strong 手机版, with heritage; helping our number one industry Agriculture; support one of the best school systems in the state and attract new businesses and new citizens to a wonderful community of caring faith-based people a proud people. We also strongly believe we are a great region of like minded people and together we can accomplish everything we want.

The number of donations the Board contributes to all types of organizations that support our mission are too many to list, but they are substantial in number and amount.
