Port Huron Times Herald | January 28, 2009
Port Huron may never become the Hollywood of the Midwest, but the city has nothing to lose from exploring the possibility of attracting a movie studio.
City Manager Bruce Brown, in a recent conversation with the Times Herald Editorial Board, noted Allen Park is negotiating with a Hollywood company interested in building a major studio in Michigan. If the $100 million deal goes through, Mayor Gary Burtka said it would bring 3,500 permanent full-time jobs into his Wayne County community.
A year ago, the state Legislature approved a package of bills in an effort to entice movie makers to Michigan.
