“My big news of the day is Project Snowflake,” Griffeth said. “But based on communication with Kevin and [DAMBC] chairman Walker, I have sent the state an incentive package for Project Snowflake based on pre-approved abatement schedules.”.
State officials were expected to take their package to Gov. Brian Kemp Monday for his approval.”That’s how quickly things are moving,” Griffeth said, noting he had not seen the state’s proposed package. “I don’t think we’re at the point, quite yet, of where the location is or what they will be doing, but Project Snowflake is strong and moving forward quickly,” Griffeth said. Griffeth recommended Project Julia be inactivated simply due to lack of activity.
Recently, DAMBC board members requested that Griffeth set up a conference call with the state project manager and consultant for Project Green. Griffeth also informed DAMBC board members about a new program recently launched by the federal government related to opportunity zones.
Griffeth said the goal between now and the next board meeting on May 20 is to get some maps printed up highlighting where the federal opportunity zones are located in Baldwin County.
