Seven years have passed, and Roane County has yet to receive a return on the $2.5 million it borrowed for Plateau Partnership Park.
That hasn’t dampened Mike Farmer’s enthusiasm about the project, however.
“Whenever you have an opportunity to work with others and reduce the risk to the county residents, then it is a positive step,” he said.
Plateau Partnership Park is a joint industrial park venture between Roane, Cumberland and Morgan counties. All of the land is in Cumberland and Morgan counties.
