The redevelopment will add around 300 jobs to the area.

The C.S. Mott Foundation has allocated a good portion of $23 million to redevloping more of the Buick City site with access to the Flint River, trails, and buildings designed for warehousing, packaging and light industrial businesses.

The Michigan Strategic Foundation approved $6.5 million of the funding yesterday. The Mott Foundation will then contribute over $16 million.

Good things happening in Flint!
