FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – The Cumberland County Board of Commissioners approved a redevelopment plan Monday night that could bring 140 new jobs with it.

The Cedar Creek Business Park, near N.C. Highway 53 and 210, could be the location for a U.S.-based company.

The plan would turn about 100 acres in the business park into an advanced distribution center for the company, which has not been revealed.

Officials said the new company would bring in $44 million in taxable income.

The Cumberland County Board of Commissioners also unanimously approved an incentive package for the company. The package, in the form of tax breaks, would help lure the company to the area, officials said.

Commissioners told a group at the public hearing on the issue that the new infrastructure could attract other businesses to the business park.
