Erie County Community College will be expanding with a new academic building set to open in January of 2017. The county will be hiring an architect, project manager, and a consultant to conduct an environmental review of the $30 million project. Building design is expected to be completed by July 2015.
This comes under the heading of good news: In a release sent out this morning, Governor Cuomo announced that Corning Incorporated will invest nearly $250 million for a 94,000 square-foot facility of its diesel plan in the Town of Erwin (Stueben County). That investment will result in the creation of 250 full-time jobs and the retention of 500 positions.
“The expansion of this facility is great news for New York – a testament to our world-class workforce and further proof of our ability to compete for global jobs and business,” Governor Cuomo said. “We are extremely pleased that Corning has decided to make a major investment to expand their capacity here in Erwin, and look forward to them growing and thriving in the region.”
