Harrison County Continues to Expand and Diversify the Economy

July 7, 2014

Over the last seven years Harrison County has worked hard to offer an economic environment that allows new and existing companies to prosper.  Through the joint efforts of the Harrison County Development Commission (HCDC), the Harrison County Board of Supervisors, the Mayors, the State of Mississippi and our local leaders, we have created the opportunity for successful economic development throughout Harrison County and South Mississippi.  Every sector has seen growth, from manufacturing to wholesale/distribution to construction to service.   Our efforts have included:

  • Development of the North Harrison County Industrial Complex, a 621-acre industrial park offering project-ready sites with roads, rail, water, sewer, gas
  • $570 million State Port restoration project underway
  • Adoption of a Tax Abatement Policy which allows companies to know what to expect from local government
  • Expansion of Seaway Road, a major thoroughfare, to five lanes
  • $2.5 million dollars in improvements to the Industrial Seaway to assist our marine interests
  • Commitment to faster and easier permitting procedures

What has this commitment to creating a positive business environment fostered in Harrison County?

  • Over 300 acres of new development
  • A capital investment of $201,000,000
  • 2,400 new jobs
