This series includes approximately 145 computer graphic files documenting the groundbreaking and construction of the Red Hills EcoPlex, an industrial site in Choctaw County centered around a power plant fired by lignite from an adjacent coal mine. The Red Hills EcoPlex was designed as an ecologically-sensitive industrial park intended to minimize waste and pollution while maximizing profit. The files in this series were apparently maintained by Ron Forsythe, manager of the Policy Analysis and Planning Bureau of the Mississippi Department of Economic and Community Development (now the Mississippi Development Authority).

Thumbnails of the 142 image files are available for browsing. The three other files in the series (Microsoft Project and Powerpoint files) are available as PDFs through the "List Documents" and "List All" links.
