GM Plant Purchase Proposal


The Parish Commission would allocate up to $7.5 million in parish funds to purchase the former GeneralMotors Assembly Plant. The money – which would come out of the reserve trust and oil and gas funds – would be directed to Caddo Parish’s Industrial Development Board (IDB) to purchase the facility, land and mineral rights.

IDB would lease the facility to Stuart Lichter’s Industrial Realty Group (IRG), which would assist Elio Motors in developing operations at the plant, as well as fill the remainder of the facility with otherfirms, under the proposal.
