MACON, Ga. — The Macon-Bibb Industrial Authority along with Central Georgia Technical College and Robins Air Force Base are set to make an announcement Friday morning at the former Boeing plant.

They say it’s for the development of a ‘strategic workforce project,’ and if approved, will be housed on property at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport.

Plans will be revealed for facilities, hangars, and classrooms for workforce and training programs in what they call a ‘first-of-its-kind project.’
