Was in Dallas last week.  Looks like the area out south of Denton would be pretty good for Amazon.  Easy access to the BIG and getting bigger airport.




And if anyone thinks they have better roads than we do hasn't driven there before.  Was all over the area and there are many more orange barrels.  And the roads waiting their turn at the barrel are at least as bad as anything here.

So... does anyone know anything about our Amazon bid?  Are we actually submitting a proposal?

It's in the works from what I've heard, but no details on it at all. There was some coverage today/yesterday about proposals (both by OKC and Tulsa)

And there it is. Proposal brief incoming - probably just rehashing the original bullet points from the first news cycle

Bartlesville - up near the Walmart DC would be good.   (JK...I don't really believe that...)

Actually, that would make the most sense as you could draw talent from Bartlesville and southern Kansas and it wouldn't overload the infrastructure in Tulsa.  It's not like a major employer like that is going to pay any net property taxes for the foreseeable future due to corporate welfare so who cares where it is physically built?

Here's a new twist: Oklahoma City-Tulsa

    More than 100 cities have expressed interest in making a run for Amazon's HQ2, based on previous reports.

Hmmm, maybe that would usher in a high speed train from TUL to OKC...

And there is a nearby airport with apparent room to expand:

Speaking of, what exactly makes an airport "international". TUL doesn't exactly have daily flights to ANY destination outside the lower 48. Is it just the capability to handle flights internationally?

International airports have customs and immigration services.  They may or may not have flights to direct destinations outside of the country.
