Town boom resumes as GM plant expands

SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) -- The expansion of a General Motors' auto assembly plant in Spring Hill is breathing new life into the city.

Real estate agent Mindy Hill says the city has the hottest home sales in Middle Tennessee this year. Hill told The Tennessean that homes under $200,000 are "going like hotcakes."

Meanwhile, Boyce Magli of Magli Realty Co. says he is fielding calls he hasn't had in a couple of years from companies interested in leasing space for restaurants and retail shops.

It's a reversal of 2009, when GM stopped making the Chevrolet Traverse SUV at the plant and laid off 2,000 workers.

Production of the Chevrolet Equinox is slated to begin by September and other projects will follow which will mean nearly 2,400 jobs could be added through next year.
