Ft Payne Mayor Bill Jordan said he feels that 2010 holds a great deal of promise, in terms of economic growth for the City. 

Jordan says economic development is the Number 1 goal for the New Year with one particular goal, being the placing of a new industry, at the site of the old Sara Lee Bakery. The City had bought the building, which has been empty for some time, with the hope of re-selling it at cost to an industrial prospect.

Jordan also stated that he believes the completion of a new interstate interchange, located near 49th Street, could be a major factor in helping recruit industry to the area.
