FedEx Ground Plans Distribution Center
The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance says there could soon be a new economic development addition to Fort Dodge's east side. Dennis Plautz, CEO of the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance, says FedEx Ground is considering building a package distribution center at the industrial park on the east side of town, and would be located south of the Post Office. A total of 12 jobs could be created. Fed Ex officials are proposing to buy 4 acres at the park, which is owned by the Fort Dodge Betterment Foundation. A proposal for the 20,000 square foot facility will be reviewed today by the Fort Dodge Plan and Zoning Commission.
