Driving growth at the speed of business


The ten-county South Central Kentucky regional economic development partnership is professionally-staffed by the nationally-recognized Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce economic development team, whose mission is to be the driving force for businesses throughout South Central Kentucky. In fulfilling our economic development mission, the Chamber is charged by public economic development agencies with management and operations of land-holding development entities such as the Kentucky Transpark.

At every turn, the South Central Kentucky partnership team seeks to match businesses’ land, labor and timing requirements to an inventory of advantageous location and site selection options, including existing or speculative buildings. South Central Kentucky makes good on workforce training commitments, assists with permitting and zoning applications and facilitates solutions to all the details that go into a successful plant expansion, new industry attraction or international relocation.
