More shopping and retail stores are making their way to Panama City, Fla., as the Bay Economic Alliance announces the start of “Project Juniper.”
The Panama City commissioners say this project will be an economic boost for the community since it will bring in about a half-million dollars in ad valorem taxes a year as well as 200 new jobs.
EDA President Becca Hardin said the development will start with a key anchor tenant. “There is plenty of room to grow in the area of Panama City that it’s located in so it will be a great economic boost for the city,” Hardin said.
Hardin said now that the city commission has approved this project they can now meet with the developer. No timeline has been set yet for the project.
