MORAINE, Ohio (AP) — Plans show that new development on the site a former automotive plant in the Dayton area could bring as many as 800 jobs.
The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1712y23 ) reports that few details have been made public about the $250 million project on the site of the former General Motors assembly plant in Moraine.
The newspaper reports that the city of Moraine filed an application for a $700,000 grant from Montgomery County. The project also will require funding from JobsOhio, the state's private development arm.
The work would involve advanced materials and manufacturing, as well as logistics and distribution. Jobs would carry an annual salary of $32,000 to $35,000.
The project would take over the 4.2 million-square-foot plant south of Dayton. The plant stopped building trucks in 2008.
