AAEDC leads initiatives for 2016 and into 2017
The Alexandria Area Economic Development Commission kicked off its annual meeting on Feb. 6 with an inside look at Full Circle International's 7,000-square-foot office and distribution facility in Garfield. Full Circle International manufactures and distributes drywall sanding tools and abrasives. The AAEDC worked with the city of Garfield for parcel annexation assistance and tax increment financing. The project was also approved with a GAIN loan through Great Alexandria Industrial Network. Following the tour, the meeting continued at the Garfield City Hall for dinner and a presentation of the AAEDC's 2016 highlights and plans for 2017 by Nicole Fernholz, executive director.
