Michael Paris, the executive director of the Paris Economic Development Corporation, discusses a tax abatement reinvestment zone that has been approved by the Lamar County Commissioners Court to permit Cypress Creek Renewables to construct a 60-acre solar farm in the eastern part of the county.  Paris says solar farm would generate considerable revenue for the Prairiland ISD.  Michael says it's expected that the State Highway 24 widening project is expected to be complete this summer, which will improve Paris' industrial recruitment potential.
