Northern Kentucky is posting strong jobs numbers for 2012. The Tri-County Economic Development Corporation reports 24 companies announced new locations or expansion projects last year, creating nearly 3,774 jobs.
Boone County Judge Executive and Tri-Ed Chairman Gary Moore says that's pretty good given the economic situation.
"This is the fourth highest as far as job creation... in our 25 year history," he says. "It's the seventh highest in capital investment. All of these are great signs that Northern Kentucky is positioned well for future growth and recovery."
Update: Westwood Civic Association has asked the city to not move forward with this project until it gets the answers needed to make an informed decision.
In an e-mail the group says, "Please understand Westwood Civic is not for or against the project, we need more information and we want to involve more of the citizens, business owners etc. from the neighborhood. This project should not go forward until we hear from more of you and our business owners."
A Westwood Civic representative will be addressing Council prior to a vote on the funding issue.
