GCEDC Accepts Application for Proposed $7 Million Project in Town of Batavia
BATAVIA, NY – The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) board of directors accepted an application for incentives for a $7 million capital investment development project on 14 acres of land on West Saile Drive & Call Parkway in the town of Batavia at its February 4, 2021 board meeting.
LandPro Equipment LLC proposes to acquire and develop a 14-acre parcel on which it would build a 50,000 square-foot facility for a full-service John Deere Agriculture and Turf Dealership. The facility would primarily be used for operations and training, with a portion of the facility used for retail.
The project proposes to create up to 5 new jobs and retain approximately 60 jobs in Genesee County.
“We are encouraged to see more companies growing in Genesee County with the goal of expanding their operations and increasing training capacity,” said GCEDC President and CEO Steve Hyde. “Genesee County has the workforce talent and developable properties aligned to accelerate a company’s facility construction and successful operations.”
A public hearing will be scheduled, as LandPro Equipment LLC is seeking property, sales and mortgage tax abatements totaling approximately $731,000. It is anticipated that with every $1 of public sector investment will generate a return of $7 of private sector investment.
