Cherokee County economic director credits film industry for boom


Cherokee County Office of Economic Development President Misti Martin updated the Canton Rotary Club last week on the growth in the region. As reported by the Cherokee Tribune, she named advanced manufacturing, commercial developers, corporate operations, film and media and information technology as the key drivers of growth.

Regarding film she said, “The state has camera-ready partners in each of the communities across the state and we are the camera-ready liaison for Cherokee, so we work with the Georgia Film Office on tons of different projects.
