Creating Jobs and Facilitating Development

The Putnam County Development Authority (PCDA) is a quasi-government agency that was established in 1961. Over the years, PCDA has established business parks, entertained and won development contracts for manufacturing and industrial companies, and has helped retain the businesses that already call Putnam County home.

The organization focuses on creating jobs, increasing the tax base, and facilitating development in the county through business attraction and retention which consists of widely different and unique tasks. At its core, PCDA is driving development in Putnam County.
