The Genesee County Economic Development Center has given approved tax breaks for new projects.
Dick’s Sporting Goods is reportedly coming to Batavia. The GCEDC approved $1,052,104 in tax incentives for the developer, COR, to move into the former Lowe’s building on Veterans Memorial Drive.
The development will create an estimated 120 retails jobs in the Town of Batavia.
Clarification: The GeneseeCounty Economic Development Center board has announced its approval of developer COR’s project being set for a public hearing, but the project has not received final approval.
Batavia Showtime at 6 Alva Place is planning a $52,200 investment for the purchase and installation of a digital movie projector.
The GCEDC approved a $4,176 tax exemption on the purchase. The release says the board is looking to assist in Batavia Showtime’s project because, being the only local movie theatre, it qualifies as a tourism destination.
An estimated three new jobs will be created and four jobs retained.
LeRoy Plastics is investing $885,000 for the consolidation of all operations and processes into one facility, and the GCEDC approved more than $43,931 in tax abatements for the project altogether.
The company plans to renovate portions of the new facility and purchase furniture, fixtures and equipment. The project will create five new jobs.
