Carl Cambell of the Dalton-Whitfield Joint Development Authority says  “It’s a good time in Dalton, you know we’ve been though quite a lot of downturn because of the housing recession that we went through in two thousand eight, nine, uh, ten, kind of roughly in that period. Uh, right now we’re seeing a lot of investment, and so we’ve had, over a billion dollars of investment in Dalton since the recession.”
