Knox Regional Development Alliance (KRDA) recently announced the launch of a comprehensive website featuring information on communities in the Greater Fort Knox Region. The site, greaterfortknox.com, is a one-stop virtual location for military families relocating to the area.
“Moving to a new area can be daunting, especially for military families,” said KRDA CEO Brig. Gen. Retired Jim Iacocca. “Nowhere else in the country will you find more military-friendly communities than those surrounding Fort Knox. This is our way of welcoming military families and showcasing the quality of life they will enjoy in this region.”
KRDA consulted Fort Knox leadership on information military families seek when relocating to the region. The site, designed by marketing firm Heartland Communications Consultants, Inc., features resources for education and childcare, government services, utilities and community information for Radcliff, Vine Grove, Elizabethtown and the rest of Hardin County, as well as Meade, Bullitt and LaRue counties. In addition, the site’s employment section provides information on job opportunities and career coaching for military spouses and family members.
“The purpose of this site is to make the transition of military families a bit easier by providing a list of community resources specific to our region, all in one location,” said KRDA Chairman and Abound Credit Union CEO Ray Springsteen. “Where ever they choose to call home when stationed at Fort Knox, we want these families to know they will be supported.”
