KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) – Plans for an Amazon distribution center are moving forward in Kenosha. The City Council unanimously approved a series of proposals for the $250 million project Monday night. The council has authorized $18 million in tax incremental financing and approved a development grant agreement and conditional use permit. The developer, KTR, will lease the property to Amazon. The 1.5 million-square-foot warehouse will mean 1,100 full-time jobs for Kenosha and beyond. Mayor Keith Bosman tells the Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/19x6mI1 ) about 850 jobs will be warehouse positions. KTR vice president, Jeff Zygler says they hope to have the distribution center operational by next fall.
