MAYHEW, Miss. (AP) -- Officials from Oktibbeha, Lowndes and Clay counties will meet Sept. 14 to unveil initial plans for a new regional development initiative.
The meeting will be at East Mississippi Community College's Lyceum Building in Mayhew.
In July, economic developers announced the formation of a steering committee representing the three counties charged with developing a partnership proposal by mid-September.
Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors President Marvell Howard tells the Starkville Daily News the forum will focus on organizing, funding and implementing a consortium.
Starkville Mayor Parker Wiseman says the potential endeavor could establish a level of regional cooperation the Golden Triangle -- West Point, Columbus and Starkville -- has never experienced.
