Anderson County has received the “John S. Wilder Rebuild Tennessee” Award from the Tennessee Development District Association (TDDA). Anderson County was recognized for the development of a temporary campus of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT).
The temporary facility will be located in the remodeled Hensley Shopping Center, a commercial facility on Highway 61 in Norris. A permanent location will be constructed in the I-75 Business Park in Clinton. The award was made during the TDDA Legislative Reception held on March 7th in Nashville.
The TDDA is an association of Tennessee’s nine development districts, which are regional planning and economic development organizations. These policy boards within each District are made up of the state’s 95 Counties and 340 municipalities.
Development districts assist with regional issues including planning and economic development coordination, transportation, solid waste, loans and grants for critical infrastructure such as water and sewer systems, housing, tourism, economic development loans, environmental quality and natural resources planning, work force development and services to the elderly.
