STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A proposed $21 million project for Starkville would include a 25-acre automobile dealership complex and a mixed-use development with office space, a restaurant, convenience store and 15 single-family homes.

According to local media reports, Chris Gouras, a representative of HPM Development LLC, is asking the city and Oktibbeha County to support a $3 million-maximum tax increment financing bond package for construction of an access road and other infrastructure improvements.

The development would be along the eastern extension of Mississippi Highway 12.

Gouras says the complex is expected to house two dealers selling Chevrolets, Chryslers, Dodge Rams and Jeeps. It is planned to be ready by September 2016.

The first phase of the project is expected to create 70 full-time jobs and 10 part-time positions. Additional phases could create another 50-75 jobs.
