Paulding industrial development new business park in Paulding County NEWS Posted November 10, 2019 · Report reply Paulding industrial development agency OKs land deal for new business park Paulding County’s Industrial Building Authority is buying land to develop a new business park near Ga. Hwy. 92 in Hiram as it works to complete a deal to sell a site to a tire maker in west Dallas. The building authority has agreed to buy a 127-acre tract on Bill Carruth Parkway at Laird Road in Hiram for development of a park, said authority director Robert Crouse. Crouse did not disclose the price but said it was “reasonable” and will allow it to compete for buyers without taking a loss. The site is about a half-mile west of Carruth Parkway’s intersection with Ga. Hwy. 92, also known as Hiram-Douglasville Highway. GDOT is widening and rebuilding Hwy. 92 between Hiram and Douglasville which will give southeast Paulding County — including the building authority’s site — and western Cobb County quicker access to I-20. “That is some really prime property,” Crouse said. He said the building authority is “going to try to be frugal” with the money it received earlier this year from the sale of Atlanta Film Studios.
