NEW WINDSOR – Developers of a sports complex appeared before the Orange County Industrial Development Agency Thursday seeking approval for financial incentives to build a $9 million facility in the Town of Chester.
The 31,500 square foot facility would provide space for indoor and outdoor sports and be an economic boost to the entire region, said IDA Associate Executive Director Laurie Villasuso.
“Roughly 15 permanent jobs, but especially with a project like this, there is such a big multiplier effect when you have so many people traveling to the area, so hotels, restaurants, and just the economy-at-large is so greatly impacted by a project like this,” Villasuso said.
The company currently operates out of facilities in the Village of Florida. It is seeking real property tax abates, a 10-year PILOT, a mortgage tax exemption and sales and use tax exemption.
A public hearing will be held in the next several weeks.
