This Golden LEAF grant will help Johnston County and the Town of Four Oaks provide water and sewer infrastructure to support the location of Broad River Retail, LLC in the Town of Four Oaks. Broad River Retail is the largest independently owned Ashley HomeStore licensee. The company is planning to locate a new corporate campus and distribution center in Four Oaks. The project is expected to create 161 permanent full-time jobs with an average annual wage of $42,391 compared to the county average of $39,553. The water and sewer infrastructure will also serve other properties and create beneficial redundancies in the systems. Golden LEAF’s funds will be awarded to Johnston County, which will construct the water improvements and enter an interlocal agreement or similar arrangement with the Town of Four Oaks which will construct the sewer improvements. The total cost of the water and sewer infrastructure is $3.025 million.
