MMIC BENEFITS LOCAL COMMUNITIES
Create Good-Paying jobs
A project of this size requires local, highly skilled workers. This development would bring engineering and professional service careers to the area, along with production jobs that provide a pathway for economic opportunity. It would also provide the opportunity for thousands of hard working construction workers to support their families with high quality, specialized construction jobs in the area.
These site investments have been pursued in partnership with local officials to collectively identify a project that would support generations of young talent to be able to build a career and future in Michigan while also protecting our community’s way of life.
SUPPORT OUR QUALITY OF LIFE
Farming and agriculture are being crippled by the chip shortage making it difficult to maintain and upgrade essential farming equipment leaving fields empty or unable to harvest. Expanding US chip making capacity will significantly impact farming and agricultural livelihoods and the broader food supply chain.
Studies of similar investments in Michigan and other states have shown that these opportunities generate billions of dollars of new personal income over a 20-year timeframe.
In addition to creating jobs, the MMIC and any associated development will be designed in a way that protects our quality of life, keeping noise pollution to a minimum.
Help with agricultural research and advancement
The 1,500 acre campus represents less than .4% of farmland in Clinton County. The majority of the campus is owned by Michigan State University.
In 2005, Mr. David Morris made the decision to donate the land that he and his wife farmed to Michigan State University. His expressed expectation was that the land would eventually be sold and that 55% of the proceeds from the sale would fund four endowments within the Michigan State’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and therefore benefit agricultural research, education and outreach in perpetuity.
