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.
