Commissioners approved a $2.3 million budget for the construction of the building, which has yet to be designed.
The building will be designed and constructed by Lusk & Co. of Alpharetta and will house multiple agricultural agencies, including USDA officials, Georgia Soil and Water Commission agents and the Gordon County Extension.
The building will be located on a five-acre tract donated by the Development Authority of Gordon County on Ga. 53 Spur, adjacent to the Northwest Georgia livestock pavilion.
In addition to housing all three agencies in one place, the building will contain a 300-seat community room.
