Campus Club director seeks project support


Campus Club Milledgeville (CCM) owns and has long-term renovation goals for the former Concord Building off Highway 22.

CCM director Greg Barnes asked the Development Authority of Milledgeville and Baldwin County for a vote of support during Monday’s board meeting but is still waiting on an answer.

Barnes sent the authority a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in hopes the economic development group will formerly agree to support CCM outreach goals of business incubation at the old industry complex.

“It’s formal handshake to say I see what you are doing, and I’ll support you all the way up to the point that I’ll give you some money,” he said. “As long as it does not go after your budget and if it has the potential to create jobs, I think you need to start thinking that way.”

The CCM director said the MOU backing from the authority would help a lot in the non-profit and grant arenas.

“Partnership is always important when we begin to talk with people outside of Baldwin County,” Barnes said.

The board didn’t make a formal motion to accept the MOU saying that legal counsel needed more time to review the document.

Attorney Georgia Carpenter Jr. said Monday the submitted document wasn’t “definitive enough project-wise” for agreement.

“I think we need to look at it and have the board discuss this even more,” board chairman Paul Dean said. 

Barnes said CCM has MOU’s with Georgia College, Central Georgia Technical College and the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office among nearly 20 other supporters. The Baldwin County Commissioners supplied a letter of support as well.

“It says that when there’s areas we agree on we partner in those areas to affect the community,” he told the Development Authority board Monday.
