Business center, technical school to be built in Driggs


An incoming business complex in Driggs promises to create 100 local jobs and serve as a home to professional-technical education classes, thanks in part to a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Commerce Department.

The Teton County Professional Technical Education and Business Center will provide workforce training and college courses for potentially hundreds of residents annually.

The complex also is expected to generate $850,000 in private investments during the course of several years, according to officials with The Development Co. in Rexburg.

The complex is housed inside The Development Co.-owned Old Ford Garage at 1420 N. Highway 33.
