AM General Preparing For Move To Auburn Hills

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

Two months ago, it was announced by the Michigan Strategic Fund Board that AM General, a heavy duty military and civilian vehicle manufacturer, planned to move its engineering and advanced technology offices for prototype development to the City of Auburn Hills.

AM General is a world leader in the design, engineering, manufacturing, and support of Light Tactical Vehicles. They produce the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV or Humvee®)

As part of their relocation, AM General has applied for a Special Land Use Permit to create a screened and secured outside storage area on the south side of their new home located at 1399 Pacific Drive.

Location of proposed outside storage area

Those interested in learning more about this proposal are encouraged to attend the Planning Commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday, May 10th at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall.  A final decision on the application is anticipated to be made by the City Council on Monday, May 22nd.
