CORTLANDT – With half of the Indian Point nuclear power closed and the remainder to shut down permanently next April, the host Town of Cortlandt, Thursday, rolled out its new economic development marketing plan dubbed “Where Life Works.”
The closure of the power plant, which has been the largest employer and taxpayer in the town, will present new challenges to the town’s economy, said Supervisor Linda Puglisi.
The new marketing effort will be used to promote what the town has to offer, said the supervisor.
“Cortlandt offers you twice the space at half the cost; we have very low town taxes that we are very proud of,” she said. “Cortlandt offers you an educated and diverse workforce. Cortlandt also offers you a lifestyle second to none located by the beautiful Hudson River and many lovely parks as well. Cortlandt offers a great location in the northern Westchester section of Westchester County. Cortlandt is committed to aiding investors and entrepreneurs through a streamlined approval process.”
A new brochure, a micro-website and personal contact are available to aid businesses in considering locating or expanding in Cortlandt.
