AEDC Brings Amazon One Step Closer To City

The AEDC board has moved one step closer to an agreement to bring  500 full-time jobs and more than $13 million in annual payroll to Amarillo.

Amarillo Economic Development Corporation President and CEO Kevin Carter said they approved an incentive of $2.5 million for services to build a warehouse and distribution center in Amarillo.

The facility in northeast Amarillo will be one million square feet and cost $100 million.

The agreement will go to the city council next week for approval and Potter County commissioners the week after that.
