As land becomes increasingly more important the ability to identify and prepare suitable sites for development is critical for the development of ratables and a spectrum of job opportunities. The County’s first successful effort at the creation of a corporation park, the Emerald Corporate Center, continues to be the central home for Crystal Run Healthcare located in Rock Hill, New York – just off Route 17.
Our Shovel Ready Task Force has continued to work toward the creation of more pre-approved sites in Sullivan County; an effort which brought about our first “Build Now NY” grant success in 2006. The Liberty Agricultural Industrial Park has received site approval. The Glen Wild Industrial Park has also finished its permitting process. Combined, these shovel-ready commerce parks will help create hundreds of new jobs.
The Partnership also initiated the development of a Green Tech site at Sullivan County Community College, The Center for Advanced Science and Technology (CAST) and are continuing work on an additional location along Old Route 17 in Liberty – Liberty Light Industrial Park.
