The unanimous vote by council towards the approval of a $13.4 million in road infrastructure reimbursements for the next distribution center of Amazon is being seen by many as a progressive move. The voting was conducted on Monday are there are reports this distribution center will result in the creation of almost 1.500 jobs in Charlotte.
A close outlook at the matter
According to a person well conversant with the matter, this economic development project has its own code name. It is commonly referred to as “Quattro.” It is a befitting name for the Charlotte-based facility of Amazon. Quattro comes in the fourth place among those facilities Amazon has managed to set up so far.
CF Hippolyta Charlotte LLC will be making good its promise of purchasing the land being sold by the city which is valued at about $7.5 million. Greek mythology provides that Hippolyta was an Amazonian queen and that might have had quite much to do with choice of the name.
It was in a recent interview that Brent Cagle, an aviation director, was pressured to identify the firm. It was an exercise of futility since he declined to mention the name.
To coerce him to speak out, he was asked if he knew what Hippolyta was. He quickly dismissed the question by laughing it off and subtly outlining that he knew absolutely nothing regarding Greek mythology.
His reaction is being met with fury especially among those persons who believe he is not being sincere. A short while before the voting was conducted on Monday, Mayor Vi Lyles had spoken elaborately in relation to the matter outlining that Project Quattro was fundamentally Amazon.
A focus into the future
Recent reports indicate the airport is willing to reimburse Amazon $4.4 million, an amount that will play a significant role helping construct a new realignment of Tuckaseegee Road aside from making major extensions of the Todd Road.
The city will also be giving out $9 million which will help a huge deal with the infrastructure work. One official in a recent interview outlined that new property taxes from the project would be used in the repayment of the funds.
Mecklenburg County and the state recently made a promise they would soon be giving out additional incentives to Amazon.
At the center of its objectives, the city is remains committed to the enhancement of economic mobility. Low-income residents will benefit a huge deal from the 1,500 Amazon jobs.
