FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sept. 7, 2017
The City of Kansas City, Missouri, is already working to develop a strong bid for the Amazon HQ2 project. KCMO has multiple sites that are suitable for large developments, and we are reviewing which would best fit Amazon’s requirements.
“Kansas City has a great workforce and an excellent cost of living that would be attractive to any national company,” said City Manager Troy Schulte. “Add in our tech and Smart City infrastructure, plus jazz, fountains, BBQ and a thriving creative scene, and we think Amazon will take a good look at KC.”
Schulte has directed City staff and staff from the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, Missouri to create the bid with partners across the city.
