Bringing Business and Investment to Henry County
The Henry County Development Authority was created in 1967 by a local amendment to the Georgia Constitution. Consisting of five members, representing the five geographic commissioner districts within the county, the Authority meets the first Thursday of each month at 9 a.m. at the Authority offices at 125 Westridge Industrial Blvd., Suite 101 in McDonough.
The Authority receives the majority of its operational funding from Henry County’s Board of Commissioners. Additional income is derived from fees associated with the issuance of Industrial Development Bonds (IDBs), the sale of Authority-owned property, and revenue from investments. An independent auditor reviews the Authority’s books and records annually.
The mission of the Henry County Development Authority is to promote economic development in Henry County through the attraction of new investment and jobs and the retention and expansion of existing industries.
Henry County’s global connections and skilled labor force become home to leading companies in diversified industries, making our county a dynamic place to live, work and play.
As the cornerstone of Atlanta’s New South, Henry County’s dynamic employers, modern industrial and office parks and sites, and exceptional quality of life offers a world-class workforce and a welcoming and diverse community, with 21st century infrastructure and extensive educational and career opportunities.
