In the Spotlight: Despite SPLOST, Mills District Moves Forward. Read the Press Release.
The Augusta Regional Collaboration (ARC) Corporation was created in 2012 to work with government, economic development groups, companies and people to help Augusta realize improvements in quality of life for all its citizens, increase the number of residents and businesses that call Augusta home, improve the financial position of the government without raising taxes, and help achieve Augusta's promise as a national destination for living and working.
ARC Corporation is building resources as a "public developer" -- a real estate entity that acts in the public interest of its citizens, and creates a partner for private parties, businesses and developers in making public/private partnerships.
ARC’s method is to utilize economic development tools to amplify the growth and productivity of regional economic strengths, industries and anchor institutions to create more resources to promote social goods and infrastructure improvements.
