Within the next 30 days, Golden Triangle Development LINK representatives will go before Oktibbeha County and city of Starkville officials to ask for more than $10 million to fund future developments with the intent to make the county more attractive for potential business clients.

That was LINK CEO Joe Max Higgins’ message to the Starkville Rotary Club Monday as he reviewed the state of the Golden Triangle region and plans for future investments in the region. Higgins said LINK representatives will begin making the rounds to the Oktibbeha, Clay and Lowndes boards of supervisors through July to seek financial support for the “Communiversity,” a $38 million workforce education center at East Mississippi Community College’s Golden Triangle campus. Higgins said the LINK will ask Oktibbeha County supervisors to commit to $2.5 million in funding to support the project at the board’s July 21 meeting.
