The Tyler Economic Development Council, Lindale EDC and Mineola EDC received the Community Economic Development Award from the Texas Economic Development Council. The statewide organization gave six of the awards to councils across Texas. The Tyler, Lindale and Mineola organizations received the award in the category of organizations serving 100,001 to 250,000 people.
Our own Rea Boudreaux was on hand for the awards ceremony, for being involved with the Real Estate Committee during the site selection process for Sanderson Farms. The Brannon design team was also involved in designing the off-site utilities to serve the Sanderson Farm’s processing plant.
According to Impact DataSource, this project will have an economic impact of $1.45 billion to the local and regional economies, creating an estimated 1,700 new jobs in the Tyler area.
