  • Acquire, own, lease, sell or construct improvements to property;
  • Issue revenue bonds for port authority facilities;
  • Receive federal and state grants;
  • Cooperate broadly with other governmental agencies; and

The Port Authority uses these powers to pass advantages along to the private developer or owner. Businesses interested in partnering with the GCPA should contact a Greene County Department of Development representative to discuss potential projects.
