Houston County commissioners approved a resolution that would create an "improvement district" within the country crossing entertainment complex.

The district will be able to issue bonds and will generate revenue through fees to build infrastructure inside the project.

The districts allow developers to put in infrastructure like water and roads with private funds without having to come to the commission and using county funds.

Commission Chairman Mark Culver says improvement districts are almost like setting up a "mini-municipality".

"The project does not come to the county and ask for any monetary or in kind work or any taxpayer money from the county," said Commission Chairman Mark Culver. “All of that is done within the district.”

Commissioners will vote on the more powerful “B” district in two weeks.
