[ARCHIVED] Spaceport Camden Named a Top Infrastructure Project in the United States

The list identifies, selects, and ranks the priority infrastructure projects in the United States essential for creating jobs, competitiveness, and economic growth. All of the projects selected by CG/LA Infrastructure are positioned to harness strong support from throughout the government, labor, business, and the user community and all are projects that can, and should, start in 2019. 

Spaceport Camden will be recognized at CG/LA Infrastructure’s 3rd Blueprint 2025 Leadership Forum in Washington, DC an event featuring high-level US Government Officials speaking on upcoming US infrastructure policies, including: Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and FAA Administrator Daniel Elwell. 

“Georgia is already the number one state to do business and now Spaceport Camden is a top 50 infrastructure project in the United States. This should send a strong message to the rapidly growing commercial space industry that Camden County, Georgia is the best place in America to launch a rocket and a space company. Georgia is primed to become the epicenter of commercial space flight in the United States,” said County Administrator and Spaceport Camden project lead, Steve Howard. 

CG/LA Infrastructure is headed by Norman Anderson a recognized expert on infrastructure deal flow in the US and internationally, aimed at increasing growth, sustained job creation and wealth in economies worldwide. In 2017, the Trump Administration tapped Anderson to prioritize projects for its $1 trillion infrastructure plan. 

“From the Space Force to the National Space Council to a renewed commitment to returning to the moon, reclaiming America’s leadership in space is a strategic priority of the Trump Administration,” said Anderson. “To meet future launch demand and keep the United States competitive, we need to fast track projects like Spaceport Camden.”
