The Town of Holly Ridge is pleased to announce it has received a $200,000.00 grant from the Golden Leaf Foundation. These funds will support the development of Camp Davis Industrial Park, Phase II, by assisting with the installation costs of public infrastructure. Phase I of the Camp Davis Industrial Park is effectively sold out and now is the time to develop the eight additional lots within Phase II.

The Town of Holly Ridge hopes to complete the construction of the $1.6M project with grant funding such as the Golden Leaf grant. Construction will consist of new public infrastructure in support of industrial development; to include roads, water service, sanitary sewer, stormwater, grading, demolition and turning lanes on US Highway 17. Town Manager Heather Reynolds stated, "The Town has received unprecedented support from JOED (Jacksonville Onslow Economic Development) –  this project would not have been possible without their guidance and assistance."

The Town of Holly Ridge leaders seek to improve the individual wealth of our citizens, maintain a business climate that is conducive to the growth of strong local businesses, and grow a healthy tax base. Phase II is projected to create 235 new primary jobs across multiple industrial sectors. These new jobs will average an annual salary that is approximately 13% above the County’s current average wage. It is also forecast to induce $22.5M of private investment in the Town’s tax base.
