“Jasper County : Small Town Feel. Urban Access. Endless Opportunities.”
Forward Jasper is an effort by leaders in Jasper County to gain community input into economic development planning. Forums were conducted to begin the process and a steering committee was named to keep the process moving forward. A community retreat was scheduled in the Spring of 2012 by Jasper Economic Development and GA Electric Membership Corporation. This session was facilitated by Susan Peacock, Sr. Economic Development Consultant, GA EMC and a “Planning Session Summary” was produced showing the results of the retreat.

Several community meetings have been held including the “Community Conversation” in March 2013. This gathering was to inform the citizens of Jasper County about the ongoing and potential economic development in our region.
Forward Jasper is currently developing and effectively communicating the planning initiative with the help of Dr. Marj Davis of Mercer University School of Engineering. A series of workshops for the group began in February 2014.
