Graham Manufacturing, Provident Batavia, Six Flags Darien Lake projects moving forward
BATAVIA – The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) approved incentives for two projects and accepted an application for incentives at its Thursday, September 5, 2019 board meeting.
Graham Manufacturing will invest $2.03 million across multiple projects at its city of Batavia campus which will include an expansion of the company’s welding school, repurposing an existing 4,000 square foot structure and construction of a new 8,875 square foot warehouse.
The project would start in the fall of 2019 and be in operation by the end of the first quarter of 2020. The project also will contribute to the Batavia Pathway to Prosperity (BP2) Program. The company will receive sales, mortgage and property tax exemptions of approximately $210,000.
Provident Batavia LLC received approval for incentives to construct a 13,000 square-foot addition to an existing office, warehouse, and distribution facility leased to SCP Pools. The $1.194 million project will retain 15 jobs in the town of Batavia. This project is estimated to produce a state and regional economic impact of $594,122 and $61,516 in property taxes over 10 years. Total incentives are approximately $156,312.
Finally, the GCEDC Board accepted an application for incentives from Six Flags Darien LLC for a new $1.575 million 60-foot tall water ride at the Hurricane Harbor water park in the town of Darien. If approved, Six Flags would receive sales tax incentives of approximately $126,000. The project will help retain 380 jobs at one of the county’s largest sales tax revenue generators.
