DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - An aerospace company is looking to construct a new test site in north Alabama.

An official with Dynetics Inc. says the Huntsville-based contractor could construct a more than $14 million aerospace test facility near Decatur. It would be built on United Launch Alliance property, with construction starting as early as August.

The Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/2mBLx0V ) reports that the city’s industrial development board approved tax incentives to lure the project.

Dynetics executive Mike Graves told the board the proposed 100-foot-tall building is designed to test launch vehicles and large aerospace structures. It would be the first of multiple buildings in a planned aerospace complex at the site.
