Montgomery Whitewater takes center stage as new development strategies take shape

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Commerce Secretary Ellen McNair joined a team from Innovate Alabama today for a tour of Montgomery Whitewater, a world-class recreational facility that’s now hosting Olympic athletes, as Alabama business development leaders consider new approaches to spark economic growth.

McNair, who is spearheading the creation of a new state economic development strategic plan, said outdoor recreation assets like the Montgomery Whitewater facility can play an important role in the next-generation economic development strategies being developed by the state.

“It’s becoming clear that having outdoor recreation attractions like Montgomery Whitewater can catalyze economic development efforts at the local level,” Secretary McNair said.

“Building out Alabama’s outdoor recreation infrastructure will make the state a more attractive location for high-skill workers and help us more fully develop an ecosystem for entrepreneurship and technological innovation.”
