Officials work to hash out agreement over land

SUNY and local development officials met in Albany Tuesday to hash out terms of a project development agreement surrounding more than 300 acres of SUNYIT land to the way for arrival of a computer-chip fabrication company someday.
Assemblywoman RoAnn Destito, D-Rome, said she met with representatives of Mohawk Valley EDGE, SUNYIT and the SUNY Chancellor’s office to discuss the agreement that would allow Mohawk Valley EDGE to take control of the land and move forward with infrastructure improvements and marketing of the site. Destito said there is no date as to when an agreement will be signed, but called Tuesday’s meeting very productive.
The planned agreement occurs against the backdrop of the summer announcement that SUNYIT will become home to a nanotechnology research center in association with the University at Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.
