In the past, the IDB would only meet to initiate the paperwork required for the issuance of such bonds. Today, IDB members are more active in establishing the foundation for new industries to locate in Monroeville, such as the development of the Monroeville Industrial Park. Funding for the first speculative building, which is the present site for Warrior Tractor Company, came from Alabama Power Foundation to the IDB to finance the construction of the first building in the Industrial Park.
The Industrial Park currently has an EDPA approved AdvantageSite available. This site includes 32 acres with accessible infrastructure. Phase I Engineering has been conducted on the site. For more information about this site or other available properties in the Industrial Park, contact Glen Haab at the Monroeville/Monroe County EDA at 251-743-2012.
Board members: Patrick Harrigan, President, Paul England, Treasurer, Al Brewton, Jemison Cunningham, Bryan Jones, Stuart Richeson, and Conrad Watson
