Wyoming City Council Prepping For Industry Short And Long Term

Wyoming City Council members moved a little closer Monday to make a former industrial complex ready for its next job providers.

City Manager Curtis Holt said "Site 36", the former GM Stamping Plant property was approved as an Industrial Development District. "Usually we do those when we have a specific project. In this case, we're just declaring the whole site." That designation means a step has been completed for a tenant to seek a tax abatement for their plant or business. Holt said "Site 36" is drawing interest. "We've had a lot of contacts from potential users. We still hope to have some announcements by the end of the year, we continue to market it heavily."

At the council's first August meeting, Holt said there'd be a public hearing on Industrial Development District status for land owned by Gordon Food Service. "They're going to do a project where they're building a freezer unit for this region. That will be built on the end of 50th Street adjacent to 131, some may know it as the old Sterk Concrete site." GFS was first looking at the property as a home for their headquarters, Holt said plans changed. "They moved (that) out to their Gezon Parkway location. This site remained in their inventory."
