Genesee agency to consider granting $250,000 in incentives for capital investments

Genesee agency to consider granting $250,000 in incentives for capital investments

The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) will consider nearly $250,000 in incentives for three projects at its upcoming meeting March 29.

Genesee Lumber Co. plans to demolish an existing structure to make way for a more than 7,000-square-foot warehouse addition to its operation in the city of Batavia. The $300,000 capital investment project would create three jobs and retain 29 jobs. The company is seeking roughly $57,000 in incentives.

Town Center Plaza LLC is seeking to add a grocery store to the village of Corfu on a site where a previous grocery store has been shuttered for several years. The new, 20,000-square-foot facility is a $1 million investment that would create seven jobs. Town Center is seeking roughly $77,000 in incentives.

The GCEDC board also will consider accepting an application from Xylem Inc. The water technology company is proposing to expand its existing facility from roughly 18,000 square feet to 26,000 square feet. The expansion would result in a capital investment of $800,000. Xylem is seeking incentives of $100,000.

The company plans to consolidate its Gates facility to the Batavia facility, GCEDC noted.

The GCEDC board meeting, which is open to the public, will take place Thursday at Batavia’s Innovation Zone.
