"I am so very proud of our two communities, Williamson County, the State of Texas, Taylor ISD, Hutto ISD, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce for putting forth such a herculean effort in pursuit of this project," said Hutto EDC President Joey Grisham.

"This is a game-changer site," said Joey Grisham, president of the Hutto Economic Development Corp.

Hutto didn't have an available 5 million-square-foot building, but Grisham said the community submitted a proposal to build on several hundred acres.
Grisham said he could get Taylor to help enlarge Hutto's original proposal of several hundred acres.
Grisham said Hutto-Taylor had put together a package of tax abatements and rebates worth $800 million to $900 million over 20 years. It had spent $20,000 for an option on the 1,200-plus acres.
The only upfront money would be whatever the state offered from the Texas Enterprise Fund.
"We knew no one was going to give $500 million upfront," Grisham said.
Nevada provided a $1.3 billion package, including tax breaks that will allow Tesla to operate the factory virtually tax-free for years.
"I don't view it as a loss because look at the exposure we're going to get," Grisham said. "This is the biggest project talked about in the world."
He said the Hutto-Taylor partnership is trying to extend the options on the land and is approaching investors to buy the land - at a cost of $20 million - to keep the megasite together for a game-changing project.
