Megasite advances

A 1,700-acre Megasite in Haywood County, west of Jackson, moved a step closer to reality, with the vote yesterday of the State Building Commission to allow spending about $40MM for land. Gov. Phil Bredesen has previously committed to building a 20-acre solar farm on the property that's being assembled, with much of the Solar expenditure funded by Federal Stimulus funding. The Jackson Sun reports. Related: The Tennessean reports further on threatened lawsuits that could yet slow the megasite's development, if environmentalists, landowners left out of the deal and others follow through.
