Sullivan County commissioners unanimously decided to allow state tax money help pay for the future Pinnacle development.
That's the property off Exit 74 in Bristol, Tennessee that is the future home of Bass Pro Shops.
At a called meeting Friday morning, the commission approved to opt-in to a new state law that will give the county 4.125 cents of every state tax dollar made from that development.
That money will help pay the county's cost to make the site ready and available for new retailers.
"You have to do a lot of development. If you're not familiar with that site, you know the topography of that site is pretty mountainous, and so there's going to be a lot of money spent on bringing it down to road level," said Sullivan County Mayor Steve Godsey.
Godsey also told News 5, he believes this could help make the development as big as Turkey Creek in Knoxville, and the sales tax revenue generated for the county could help bring in millions of dollars for the school systems.
