State of Georgia to consider creating a city named Amazon

Seattle HQ

The city of Stonecrest is drawing national attention since it announced on Monday it is seeking to create a town that would be named Amazon, Georgia inside the new city if the tech giant accepts the city's bid to build its second world headquarters in Stonecrest.

Stonecrest's resolution asks the Georgia General Assembly to form the city of Amazon on the land, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

With the RFP deadline of October 19 looming, Stonecrest probably won't be the last city to make a insane play for HQ2. Or should we say Amazon, Georgia? Stonecrest and the parcel of land in question lie about 20 miles east of Atlanta's city center.

It's a bold action, but one Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary feels will set his city apart from the competition.

"There are several major USA cities that want Amazon, but none has the branding opportunity we are now offering this visionary company".

Sanders pointed to Chicago, saying that the city's strict gun laws have not stopped the thousands of gun-related deaths there.

"We have all of those qualities as well with MARTA rail planned to our community, interstate improvements under way and a highly-educated work force eager to see the company locate here", Lary said.

Whether Stonecrest wins Amazon's HQ2 or not, there's no denying this whole thing has been pretty freaking embarrassing for the cities participating in these business-style Hunger Games.

In addition to the land, Amazon has said it is looking for a location that is close to an worldwide airport and accessible through public transit. According to their AEG Amazon HQ2 Index, New York, Chicago, and Las Angeles are the three top contenders.

The city of #Stonecrest in DeKalb County, #Georgia is fairly new, voted into being by referendum in November 2016.

With up to 50,000 jobs and $5 billion in investments on the line, Memphis would be foolish not to make a pitch. Check back with www.neighbornewsonline.com for more details as they become available.
