A group of people who either hold the purse strings or are in a position to influence business owners who might be willing to relocate to Genesee County received a tour Thursday of the shovel-ready business parks in Genesee County.
The group included representatives of commercial lending institutions in Rochester and Buffalo, real estate agents and staff from the Small Business Forum and the USDA Rural Development office.
Also on the bus were representatives from Sen. Kristen Gillibrand's office and the office of Sen. Mike Ranzenhofer.
After lunch and a briefing at Batavia Downs, the group stopped first at the planned site of Alpina Products in the Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park. From there they headed out to Bergen, then to the Med-Tech Park, then Town of Batavia's Gateway project, then Pembroke and Buffalo East, followed by the location of the proposed STAMP project in Alabama.
