MADISON COUNTY could use a good conference center, maybe somewhere along Highland Colony Parkway, and two “task forces” will be discussing how to fund it. Getting a conference center built is one of the goals of the county’s quality of life task force, one of five such groups working on the county’s long-term strategic plan. The groups recently presented an update of the strategic plan to county leaders, stakeholders and the media at the Butler Snow law firm in Ridgeland. “We have two main goals – young professionals housing, which I think is a major economic opportunity, and a conference center for Madison County,” said Gail Pittman, president of Gail Pittman Inc., and chair of the quality of life committee, at last week’s meeting. With funding from the Madison County Board of Supervisors, the Madison County Economic Development Authority (MCEDA), and private businesses, the quality of life group hired Johnson Consulting out of Chicago to conduct a feasibility study for a conference center in the county. What Johnson found, through “lengthy” interviews with Madison County’s largest companies, Pittman said, was that such a facility was indeed needed. Proposed specs for the center are 60,000 square feet including 25,000 square feet of space for exhibitions, ballrooms and meeting rooms – and a 200-room hotel attached. Johnson recommended locating the complex near existing hotels, perhaps on Highland Colony Parkway near the Renaissance and Township developments. “But we don’t say it necessarily has to be exactly there,” Pittman told the Sun. “There may be other people who want to look at other areas.” Read More
