Only two TVA Megasites are left unsold in the region, including the Hopkinsville location, but officials are still optimistic for its future.
The Tennessee Valley Authority designated seven sites as ready for major development several years ago, saying they had the necessary infrastructure to support a large industry.
Out of those seven, only the Hopkinsville site and West Tennessee site remain vacant. Hopkinsville-Christian County Economic Development Council Director Mitch Robinson says he believes that will change when the economy improves.
Robinson says his office will continue to market the site along with TVA to one day bring much-needed jobs to the area.
The TVA Megasite in Clarksville was sold several years ago to Hemlock Semiconductor, which continues the construction process. Toyota and Volkswagen were among the other major corporations which purchased Megasites.
