City of Columbus Submits Proposal in Response to Amazon’s Request to Build Second Headquarters
The following statement is from Mayor Andrew J. Ginther and Columbus City Council:
“The City of Columbus submitted a proposal in response to Amazon’s request for proposals for the company’s second North American headquarters project. If awarded to Columbus, the project would further validate the strength of the Columbus market, afford new employment opportunities to thousands in our community, and create the opportunity to explore new, innovative educational partnerships.
“Regarding the incentives offer from the City, the City of Columbus is ensuring that Amazon locating its second headquarters in Columbus would provide substantial new funding to Columbus City Schools and new educational opportunities for our children.”
