FIRST STEPS TAKEN FOR HOMEGOODS DISTRIBUTION CENTER IN WARD 5

By Tucson Vice Mayor Richard Fimbres (Ward 5)

 

TUCSON – A lot has been said and even downplayed about the recent action by the Tucson Mayor and Council about the proposed, HomeGoods Distribution Center coming to our City.  Here is what has happened.

 

With my motion, the Mayor and Council approved the City’s Primary Jobs Incentive Program and Payment In Lieu Of Tax Measure for HomeGoods to build their new distribution center at 3649 East Corona Road, which is located in Ward 5.
