NC Governor Wants Megasites Near Triad

By Richard M. Barron

GREENSBORO — Gov. Pat McCrory said Thursday night that he is working with Greensboro leaders to create megasites in the region that might attract an automotive manufacturer.

“We’re going to be working ... to recruit automotive manufacturing to North Carolina, which is nonexistent,” McCrory told about 750 people gathered for the Greensboro Partnership’s annual dinner.

He said most other states in the Southeast have auto makers and it’s time that North Carolina recruited one.

But he stopped short of saying what North Carolina’s financial commitment might be to such an effort.

McCrory said in an interview that the best potential sites for automakers are in or near the Triad — one in Randolph County and another in Chatham County.  More here.
