Brownfields ‘summit’ to seek revitalization in six-county region of Mohawk Valley

Posted

The Mohawk Valley Brownfields Developer Summit, created by a collaboration of the six Mohawk Valley counties and the Mohawk Valley Economic Development District, will take place April 12 and 13, 2022 at the Fulton-Montgomery Community College in Johnstown.

The Summit will provide developers a dynamic in-person opportunity to network, explore, and invest in New York’s Mohawk Valley Brownfield rebirth. 

“The signing of the historic Infrastructure and jobs bill has infused the brownfield program with $1.5 billion and, along with Downtown Revitalization Initiatives and Brownfield Opportunity Area grants awarded to Amsterdam, Gloversville, Little Falls, Rome, and Dolgeville, has given the Mohawk Valley unique economic development opportunities,” a release notes.

Federal and state investments in semiconductors and the innovation economy closely aligns with the Marcy Nanocenter, Wolfspeed and Innovare Advancement Center. This surge in economic activity is putting the focus on preparing sites for industrial, commercial, residential,
and infill development.

The keynote speaker will be Senate Majority Leader, Charles Schumer; along with state Assemblyman, Robert Smullen; Lisa Garcia, EPA Region 2 Administrator; and Dr. Marion Terenzio, President SUNY Cobleskill and co-chair REDC (Regional Economic Development Council) will spotlight investments in the Mohawk Valley.
