"I have worked alongside Tech City, the DEC and four administrations to help get to this point, and am delighted to see this common sense approach finally come to fruition," Cahill continued. "Tech City will now be able to leverage their property to finance new construction, allowing them to build on the progress they have made at turning the site into a green development hub, and ultimately making the region more appealing to new and innovative industries. This plan goes hand in hand with my work on state energy policy, which include the funding used to attract Solar Tech Renewables and the grants used to establish green job training programs at Ulster BOCES and SUNY Ulster. These initiatives ensure that the new businesses drawn to Tech City will have a workforce waiting to be tapped," he said.
Cahill concluded: "This agreement is a significant step forward for Tech City and economic development in Ulster County. I applaud Commissioner Martens, Alan Ginsberg, Dan Weineke, and their respective staff for their cooperation and efforts. This victory is but one on a long string of successes contributing the resurgence of Tech City as an economic driver in the Hudson Valley."
