New solar-powered sign installed at STAMP site

posted by Virginia Kropf in Alabama, business, news, STAMP.

ALABAMA – A new solar-powered sign, which has just been erected on Route 63/77, is indication the Genesee County Economic Development Center is moving ahead with plans to develop the Science & Technology Advanced Manufacturing Plant in the Town of Alabama.

The STAMP sign stands near the new road, which was built last year from Route 63/77 to Crosby Road to divert traffic around Alabama Center.

Also, a new row of power poles is being installed by National Grid by the STAMP grounds, so existing poles can be moved to allow for widening of Route 63/77 and to create a turning lane, said Mark Masse, vice president of operations at GCEDC.

Masse said the county continues to actively search for a tenant for the site and has companies with various levels of interest in locating here.

He also said they have been working on the final piece of archeological work and are moving forward with infrastructure work.

We should be proud to be the only place in the state that has a sign for a vacant lots.....or many vacant lots. It's as big a waste of money as the Cuomo Thruway signs.

It's time to cut bait!!

That sign is the only thing working at the STAMP after all the millions of dollars dumped there.

David, to get what you want, you will have to FOIL the GCEDC because they are not going to give you that information on their own.
