On Tuesday an Executive Subcommittee of the State Building Commission unanimously approved the the $40 million land deal acquisition of mostly farmland in Haywood County to make up the West Tennessee Megasite.
The Legislature earlier this year approved bonds to buy the land that officials hope will attract an industrial investor on the scale of Volkswagen in Chattanooga or Hemlock Semiconductor in Clarksville. Those investments are expected to exceed $1 billion each.
WNWS was first to report the approval and carried reports throughout the afternoon on Steve Bowers Prime Time Drive.
