Michael T. Baldwin Reports
Wellsville Town Supervisor Shad Alsworth says the proposed Running’s Home, Farm and Outdoor Store is still a work in progress. The company plans to locate in the former K-Mart building in Riverwalk Plaza on Bolivar Road. Alsworth told The Wellsville Sun that on Thursday he plans to meet again with the Allegany County Industrial Development Agency to hammer out some details of a planned financial and tax agreement with the company.
Another proposed development on Bolivar Road, Quicklee’s, remains in the development phase. The Town Supervisor said there are still some details that need to be worked out for the site development. Wednesday night, the town board received a SEQR update, which is the State Environmental Quality Review Act. The new Walgreens also continues its development at the site. Council member Mike Miller said that the state Department of Transportation is still completing its traffic survey.
In other business:
– Airport: The Board approved a Federal Aviation Administration grant agreement for the development of about 4.5 acres for the ‘North Hangers’ area. It’s a federal matching grant, which requires a required investment from both the state and the town. The project totals slightly more than $1.3 million, with 90% of the funding coming from the federal government.
– New Municipal Building/Highway facility: Work should resume soon on the developing building on Hanover Street, when Alfred State Students return for the Fall semester. A quote is out for new more materials and HEP is the apparent low-bidder, $34,000 for some of the needed supplies.
