NEWPORT-"We feel like something will happen in 30-60 days," said Cocke County Partnership President Don Hurst on Tuesday in reporting to the Newport/Cocke County Economic Development Commission Executive Committee at their quarterly meeting.

"We've had several calls regarding industrial properties and have been showing them. Currently we are in negotiations with three companies right now. Two of the companies have filed non-disclosure agreements on the Ace building."

Hurst also told the group that he and County Mayor Vaughn Moore had met with TDOT officials in Nashville last week regarding the Exit 432 project. "We talked with them about right-of-way control relaxations which, we feel, will bring opportunities here for more businesses."
