MILLEDGEVILLE —

Chapel No. 3 demands cosmetic work and a new heat pump unit, making the building independent of the old steam energy. With a new sign, Simmons said the facility would be ready for a church opening revival.

• Cogentes bringing tech partners

As for Jones 286, the 4,200 square foot building is nearly market ready minus some basic painting. Couch said Jones already has standalone utilities.

Cogentes president Tom Glover cherishes being “in the middle of” south side movement at Central State and close to the upcoming Shaw Building developments.

“As a strategic move for the company, I thought it was a good idea to be in the middle of that,” Glover said. “It makes a lot of sense for a business like ours to be where the future growth is going to be.”

The tech-savvy firm needed more space. Web designers Goebel Media Group are moving with Cogentes. 

Glover said having the extra room at Jones 286 opens opportunities for other complementary business partners.

The convenient location is expected to boost the company’s bicycle business friendly status also. College interns will have easy bike routes to campus.

Glover said the big legal issues are over with the SPC go ahead.

“I appreciate the hard work that (Couch) and everybody else involved has done. I think we’ve had the entire community leadership trying to push this stuff through. I’m really anxious to get over there,” he said.

• STEM school coming

A former Drug Enforcement Administration laboratory director wants Milledgeville to become a hub for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. With CSHLRA help, Darrell Davis hopes to have the old Wilkes Building retrofitted for a laboratory program by next summer.

Couch said Wilkes will undergo an extensive redesign with subdivided office space and lab facilities.

Davis retired from the DEA in August 2012 and approached the CSHLRA representing his Committee for Action Program Services (CAPS) non-profit last September. CAPS is a science and technology organization that is located in Cedar Hill, Texas.
