Mon. 11:52 a.m.: Chamber to submit Howland site in Amazon bid

WARREN – The Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber has chosen a site adjacent the Eastwood Mall to submit for consideration for Amazon’s second corporate headquarters.

Enterprise Park at Eastwood, which comprises 105 greenfield acres in Howland, has been chosen as the top site in Trumbull and Mahoning counties to be considered by Amazon, which is investing $5 billion for a second North American headquarters that would create up to 50,000 jobs.

The chamber will submit its application to Team NEO and JobsOhio, which are coordinating the submissions to the company from across Ohio. Submissions are due to Amazon by Oct. 19, and the company will choose and announce the location in 2018.
