Liberty County Development Authority Puts $$ Behind ‘Friends of Fort Stewart and Hunter’

To bolster the efforts to grow Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Air Field, the board of the Liberty County Development Authority (LCDA) agreed to formally support the Friends of Fort Stewart and Hunter, a group formed to enhance the overall value of Fort Stewart and Hunter and the benefits to surrounding communities through a progressive regional partnership.

By committing to its most supportive platinum membership of $1,000 per month and providing a special one-time lump sum contribution of $50,000 to help boost several efforts of the organization, the LCDA board affirmed its support of the group’s immediate and long-term efforts to grow Fort Stewart and Hunter.

Allen Brown, chairman of the LCDA, stated, “The growth of Fort Stewart and Hunter tremendously benefits our entire economy in southeast Georgia from contractors and small businesses to increased retail sales tax revenues and additional retirees who settle in the area and pay local property taxes and support community efforts.”

“The LCDA views our actions on behalf of the growth of Fort Stewart and Hunter as that of helping one of the largest employers in the region not only retain existing employees, but also further their growth and the resultant increase in overall benefits in our region.  We are proud to take this action and encourage other authorities, chambers and local businesses to join the effort to grow Fort Stewart and Hunter as well,” said Brown.
