Background Discussion
Allied New Technologies 2, Inc., has requested a letter of support for an Intermodal Logistics Center Grant through the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) be signed by the Chairman of the BCC.

The BCC adopted Ordinance No. 17-11 on January 10, 2017, providing an Economic Development Ad Valorem Tax Exemption for a period of 8 years for the project.

The FDOT provides grant support for intermodal logistics centers, which typically have the following characteristics:   provides for the transfer of freight from one vehicle or vessel to another as part of the overall supply chain; may provide value-added activities as part of the intermodal transfer operation; be located physically outside the boundaries of a deep water seaport; and consist of a single property accessible to multiple users.

Signature of the letter of support requires no financial contribution by the County.
