A new Amazon warehouse and "last-mile" distribution center moved into Union Township in 2021. The company selected the Mt. Pleasant area as an ideal location because of its centralized geography and easy access to major highways. MMDC and Union Township assisted Amazon with their request to rezone the building, getting approvals in record time. The 12,500 square foot facility, located behind the Mt. Pleasant Depot, will employ up to 45 people in good paying jobs.
