Amazon this morning announced it has received 238 proposals from cities, jurisdictions and other partners across North America attempting to land Amazon’s second headquarters.

The Dayton region submitted a proposal. Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland and other Ohio communities did the same.

The city of Dayton was part of a regional project proposal led by the Dayton Development Coalition, said Dayton City Manager Shelley Dickstein.

The proposal outlined several potential sites in the region for Amazon to consider, and the city also collaborated with Cincinnati on its proposal by sharing data highlighting the strengths of the Dayton-Cincinnati region, Dickstein said.

The Dayton Development Coalition declined to comment for this article, citing a “confidentiality agreement” with its clients.
