STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. -- Sterling Heights City Council has given the final approval for a preservation plan aimed to keep their Chrysler Assembly plant open.

The plant was targeted for closure just 18 months ago.

Sterling Heights City Council unanimously approved a Brownfield Redevelopment Plan for the plant that will support the company's application for state of Michigan Brownfield tax credits in addition to tax abatements on the automaker's property and renovation investment.

Chrysler is expected to invest $850 million into the plant for renovations, new equipment, machinery and special tooling.
