"a discussion of incentives that could have risen to as much as $2.5 billion if a special tax had been pursued and passed by the General Assembly. As it was, the state offered Boeing packages in excess of $600 million if it chose a site in Greensboro...

In a Nov. 22 email, Secretary of Commerce Sharon Decker says she had just talked by phone to David Powell, president of the Piedmont Triad Partnership, and Jim Melvin, head of the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation.

...While Decker doesn’t expand on what she means, it’s interesting to note that one of her first calls to Greensboro included Melvin. While the former mayor keeps a lower profile than he once did, he is still clearly considered by the powers-that-be in Raleigh as someone you want to get in the loop ASAP if there’s a big economic development deal to be done in the Greensboro area."

"The Greensboro City Council has unanimously approved a $200,000 [forgivable] loan and grant package to Oakley Capital LLC, an entity managed by growing executive recruiting firm Charles Aris Inc. for development of the firm's new headquarters at 301 Battleground Ave.

...Oakley Capital purchased the vacant one-story building on April 30 for $547,500, according to public records.

...Allen Oakley, vice president of operational effectiveness and practice leader at Charles Aris, said the firm's senior management team considered a number of different options and locations but eventually decided on being part of downtown’s growth initiative.

The City Council-approved funds include a $100,000 incentive grant, which will be provided over an eight-year period and be paid back by incremental taxes and is contingent upon a $3.9 million capital investment by Charles Aris and the addition of four positions by 2016.

The council also approved a $100,000 forgivable loan that will be made immediately available for on-site asbestos removal..." [forgivable loan means free money]
