Polk County issues statement on Henderson County training center plans

COLUMBUS, N.C. – In response to the apparent decision Wednesday by the Henderson County Board of Commissioners to abandon plans for a training center off Macedonia Road near Saluda, Polk County Government’s leadership issued the following statement today:

“We are pleased that Henderson County appears to have chosen a different solution for their public safety training facility location. We look forward to working with them in helping choose a site that won’t negatively affect Polk County citizens, tourism or economic development. We are very aware of the fact that the location of a new facility would be a challenge for any citizen, so a new training facility being placed in Polk County would not be something we would be interested in.”
