Triad-- Our partner, the Triad Business Journal reports, It could be time to break ground in one part of Guilford County to lure large employers to the area.

Developer Roy Carroll wants the city of Greensboro's help in preparting a large-scale, shovel-ready site in eastern Guilford County.

Economic development officials believe it will help Greensboro secure top-tier projects.

Carroll is seeking at least $4 million in economic development bond funds, to help pay for grading and the extension of city services to a 100-acre site at Knox Road and Interstate 40.

A proposal could go before the Greensboro City Council as early as next month.

Furniture Manufacturing and Distribution Plant Could Come To Davie County:

Davie County could land a major furniture manufacturing and Distribution Plant.

If it does, they'll have R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company to help thank for it.

The company donated a 360-acre plot of land to the commision for use as an industrial site for "Project Top Drawer".

The center could be planned by Ashley Furniture to serve the East Coast. Landing the plant would be a major win for Davie County. The plant would employ about 1,000 people. It would be the county's largest employer.

There's no set time for an announcement about the project.
