Clayton State University President Dr, Thomas J. Hynes will be participating in the upcoming 10th Annual South Metro Development Outlook Conference, to be held from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Thursday, Feb. 9, at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park, Ga.
South Metro Development Outlook serves as a platform to provide an annual regional exchange for individuals with a common interest in examining and discussing relevant issues in Atlanta’s south region and beyond. The featured counties include Clayton, Coweta, Douglas, Fayette, Henry, Spalding and South Fulton, as well as the City of Atlanta.
Highlighting the conference will be four county commission chairs (from Clayton, Henry, Fulton and Douglas counties) from Atlanta Regional Roundtable discussing the impact of the Transportation Investment Act (TIA 2010) on the South Metro area.
Other topics of discussion will include the economy, impacts of the Air Cargo and the Savannah Port expansions, sustainability, development trends and higher education in South Metro. The Higher Education in South Metro session will explore the impacts of higher education on the regional economy and the opportunities for the future. Over the years, the South Metro area has become home to a number of public and private institutions of higher learning. As these entities, including Clayton State, expand, these communities are experiencing growth and revitalization, enhancing the local economy and quality of life significantly.
