The Walker County Development Authority was established by an act of the Alabama Legislature in 1991 to promote and support the growth and development of new and existing business and industry within Walker County.


The mission of the Development Authority is to expand the opportunities and improve the quality of life for Walker County residents. It is our goal to work with companies to create more and better jobs, increase the per-capita income and grow the local economy.
