Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Genesee County - The Town of Batavia Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on September 16, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Batavia Town Hall. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until September 29, 2008. The action involves the creation of a 307.3 acre Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park, a multi-phased industrial and agri-business development.

The first phase of the project consists of site planning and preparation, including the design and construction of an internal roadway, access to/from NYS Route 5, the state highway adjacent to the property, subdivision of the property, site infrastructure (e.g. water, sewer, electric/cable and natural gas lines) and site grading and fill. This project will also include off-site infrastructure improvements, specifically related to water and sanitary sewer. However, at this time, the extent of those improvements are unknown. Ultimately, the site development would include at least two additional phases to advance development throughout the site.

The Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park will provide the Town of Batavia and surrounding region with a defined area for concentrated business and industrial development that directly meets the needs of the agricultural community of Genesee County.

The project is located at 5142 State Route 5 in the Town of Batavia, New York.
