Breathitt County/City of Jackson Industrial Development Authority

In 1967 a group of local businessmen formed the Breathitt County Industrial Development Foundation. This non-profit organization was formed to promote advance the economic development of Breathitt County. These volunteers pioneered growth in Breathitt County over several decades. The Industrial Foundation was responsible for many projects including the development of the Pan Bowl Lake Industrial Park. This park includes a 40,500 sq. ft. speculative building and over 30 acres of property for industrial development.

In 2004 city and county governments voted to form the Breathitt County/City of Jackson Industrial Development Authority pursuant to KRS 154.50-301 to 154.50-346. Since the new joint Authority was engaged in activities substantially similar to the Foundation, the BCIDF voted to dissolve and distribute all assets to the new Authority. The members of the Industrial Development Authority are as follows:

  • Sue Clair
  • Barb Deaton
  • Roger Friley
  • Bruce Herald
  • Estill McIntosh
  • Carol Minix
  • JB Morgan
  • Nick Napier
  • PJ Sheffel
