A grant of up to $130,000 from National Grid will be used to continue development of the Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park in the Town of Batavia, home of the Muller Quaker Dairy and Alpina Foods yogurt plants.

The grant recipient is the Genesee Gateway Local Development Corp., which is the real estate affiliate of the Genesee County Economic Development Center. The GGLDC recently acquired 37 acres adjacent to the business park; the grant will be used to extend the current electrical distribution line along the newly constructed access road, as well as the engineering and design of the extension of the road, water and sewer lines.

The project is estimated at $600,000 and is being funded by the GGLDC and the New York State Homes and Community Renewal Agency.
