FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Harrison, AR, May 2, 2023. Based on the public’s recent discussions regarding a proposed economic development project in Harrison, Jim Holland, Chair of the Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, makes the following statement.
“Upon initial contact from Metahash Global in June 2022 requesting information on 54 acres of property listed for sale on the Arkansas Economic Development Commission’s site selection website, the staff of the Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce has acted with integrity in accordance with its mission. During subsequent discussions, from last year through this week, the Chamber simply acted as a connector with Metahash Global, Entergy, a local real estate company, a local contractor, and other local entities, independently selected by Metahash, now Green Digital, LLC. In December 2022, Green Digital joined the Harrison Regional Chamber of Commerce as an investor.
The Chamber in the past ten (10) months:
The Chamber’s mission ‘…to be recognized as the premier business organization influencing Harrison’s and the greater Boone County’s economic and business development through leadership, education, and investor partnerships’ is of utmost importance. Harrison has a collaborative environment for business, where the community works together for the future, and we welcome and value each business that chooses to invest in that economic future through the Chamber. We listen to our investors and respect their insight, and stand behind them for what’s best for the community.
Bob Largent, as Chamber President/CEO, has the full confidence of the Board of Directors to continue to lead the Chamber and its collaborative approach to economic growth for the Harrison-Boone County community.”
