WHEATFIELD – The Niagara County Industrial Development Agency board was unable to take action Wednesday on a $3.4 million apartment project in Youngstown because the address of the site was incorrect in legal notices.
IDA attorney Mark J. Gabriele said the IDA thought the address of the former Youngstown Cold Storage warehouse, which is to be demolished to make way for the 30-unit apartment building, was 701 Third St.
However, Gabriele said, “It was pointed out at the public hearing, and I later confirmed it with the village attorney, that part of the road had been changed to Nancy Price Boulevard.”
Gabriele said he concluded that the IDA had to issue a revised notice and hold another public hearing before the IDA board can vote at its Jan. 8 meeting on a 15-year tax break for the project, being promoted by David Pawlik of Creative Site Structures, Buffalo, and David Burke of Burke Homes, Hamburg.
“If it’s wrong, it’s wrong,” Gabriele said, adding he doesn’t think the winter delay will harm the project.
