The Gateway of the Americas development cleared another hurdle Tuesday when the project's landowners voted to agree on taxes that would support development at the site.
The Gateway project hopes to attract industrial development at the Calexico East Port of Entry area and could bring thousands of jobs to the county.
Gateway landowners include the Los Alamos Land Co. of San Diego and the local Menvielle and Rice family members.
Land ownership is unevenly divided between family members and investors. Each vote was weighed according to how much land the individual owned.
"I'm glad we passed another milestone," County Executive Officer Ann Capela said. "This project is a main focus for economic development in the county."
