To the Editor:
As some may have heard or read, Amazon released a statement that they will open a new warehouse to accompany large orders in Beech Grove.
This is very good news for our city, but we have been working on this for well over five months. I have found the representatives of both the building and Amazon have been very good to work with. Almost all our discussions have been with the economic development planners in Washington DC and their construction crews which are based out of Arizona.
Work will begin very soon on retrofitting the building to better provide loading and unloading with an opening set for this fall.
I found out very early in this process that Amazon does quite a bit of research and is very well-versed on what is occurring in our area especially when it comes to its future neighbors and traffic patterns.
The city should look forward to a long-standing relationship with this worldwide company.
Excellent day for our beautiful city!
Dennis B. Buckley, Mayor
City of Beech Grove
