wind turbine assembly plant
The city subsidy value and breakdown as well as the job and investment projections come from: Serenah McKay, "Mitsubishi incentive deal OK'd; Fort Smith board approves $80 million for turbine plant," Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, June 17, 2010. The state grant is cited in Laurie Whalen, "300-plus jobs await when plant is built in Fort Smith," Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, October 8, 2010.
The city package included the issuance of $75 million in industrial revenue bonds to make the facility exempt from property taxes plus $6 million in infrastructure assistance and other incentives. The state provided a $3.75 million grant from the Quick Action Closing Fund. The plant was built, but in 2012 Mitsubishi announced an indefinite delay in its opening.
