Jackson County

Jackson County is experiencing a new economic development thrust in the county with the forming of a new EDO made up of all municipalities and several business and agriculture industry owners. The County BOCC has a willingness to be creative with its incentives to attract qualified businesses that will provide a solid capital investment with above average wages and a good number of jobs. A strong pipeline of workers is created through workforce certification training programs at our local Chipola College and Florida Panhandle Technical College.



Top Reasons

  • Jackson is the only rural county with two McCallum Sweeney certified sites or parks.
  • Jackson is only county that boasts two mega-sites of over 1,000 acres each.
  • Jackson is only county that borders two other states (Georgia and Alabama), our biggest competitors.
  • Jackson is only county with an EDO less than one year old, yet has garnered more leads in the same time period than the previous organization had in past three years.
  • Jackson is only county with a workforce certification program that boasts its own nationally-run TV show (Chipola College’s ASE-certification program’s “Tech Garage” seen on The Velocity Channel).
