GREATER CLEVELAND GROWTH ASSOCIATION SUBMITS PROPOSED SITES TO DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FOR DFAS FACILITIES

 GREATER CLEVELAND GROWTH ASSOCIATION SUBMITS PROPOSED SITES
 TO DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE FOR DFAS FACILITIES
 CLEVELAND, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Greater Cleveland Growth Association today submitted a proposal to the Department of Defense detailing sites for the Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) consolidated facilities. The proposal included several sites, four of which were detailed as "preferred" per DFAS instructions.
 The four detailed sites included: a renovated campus of the National Terminals and Bingham Building in Cleveland; a new facility which would be built in Collinwood at 152nd Street and I-90; a new facility which would be built in Euclid at Brush Road; and a new facility which would be built in the Scranton Oxbow area on the west bank of the Cuyahoga River.
 Other sites presented for DFAS consideration are: a renovated Caterpillar/Towmotor building in Mentor; a new building at East 12th Street and St. Clair; a renovated complex of two buildings at 900/1010 Euclid Avenue; and a new building adjacent to Tower City.
 The Department of Defense will evaluate the proposals and will invite finalist communities to submit their best and final offer sometime in November. After March 15, 1993, the Secretary of Defense will send finalists to the U.S. Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission for a final site selection. Congress and the President must also approve the final selections.
 DFAS long range plans call for a consolidation of its present facilities, now spread among several cities, into a few "mega- centers." The Greater Cleveland Growth Association, the chamber of commerce for the Northeast Ohio area, has taken a leadership role in coordinating the efforts of local, regional, state, and federal government, civic and business leaders, and developers to bring this important project to Greater Cleveland. As many as 7,000 jobs, with an estimated economic impact of $420 million will be created with this project.
 DFAS will base its selection on dozens of criteria, including, but not limited to, total cost of the project to the Department of Defense, community characteristics and quality of life, site location, and early availability for initial occupancy.
