Brevard Commissioners Vote In Favor Of Aerospace Manufacturing Incentives
Brevard county officials voted in favor of an $8 million incentive package for aerospace manufacturing.
It’s called “Project Panther” and promises to add 330 jobs with the average salary of $89,000. The county has not disclosed the company yet.
The grant would go towards development of the site, something said to be critical to the project. The high-tech facility would be built in Exploration Park, an area just outside Kennedy Space Center
Commissioners passed a similar incentive package for Lockheed Martin, promising 300 high-tech manufacturing jobs in Titusville.
The money would come from the North Brevard Economic Development Zone – a district tasked with promoting job growth in the area after the shuttle was retired.
