Albemarle Business Center Secures Million-Dollar Grant in North Carolina’s SelectSites Readiness Program

The Albemarle Business Center has been selected for the initial round of a million-dollar grant program. This was announced at a recent meeting of the Stanly County Economic Development Commission by director Candice Lowder. The grant program, established by the North Carolina General Assembly and run by the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina (EDPNC), will provide $10 million for the next fiscal year. The SelectSites Readiness Program aims to identify up to 15 sites, with specific criteria regarding size.

Charles Curcio, the sports editor of the Stanly News & Press, has been in his role for over 16 years. He has received multiple awards for his work in sports journalism and has written numerous news and feature stories during his career. Charles was honored with the NCHSAA Tim Stevens Media Representative of the Year award and was named CNHI Sports Editor of the Year in 2014. Additionally, he has received an award from Boone Newspapers and has won four North Carolina Press Association awards.

The Albemarle Business Center, located in southern Stanly County, is 282 acres and had several documents in place that helped it secure its spot on the list of sites being considered for the grant program. A site visit was conducted at the business center in February by a potential company. Lindsey Almond, director of the Albemarle Economic Development Commission, expressed enthusiasm over the center’s selection and highlighted its benefits as being classified as a SmartSite through Electricities.
