Restaurant sought for last development property near Exit 21
Nancy Kern reports for Columbia-Greene Media that the Greene County Industrial Development Agency only has one property left to sell in its Exit 21 East development next to the interstate entrance in Catskill. IDA Director April Ernst said on Sept. 4 that the agency wants to sell the final space of the development to a restaurant which might be helped with business from guests at the Hampton Inn. Ernst said, “We’ve just started putting the word out.... I haven’t put up the For Sale sign yet. We’re definitely interested in having a restaurant because the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant.” The other parts of the development include a new Tourism Center and moving the Stewart’s Shops across Route 23. Greene County Administrator Shaun Groden explained why the county wants to develop this spot. “The location is prime, because as people get off the Thruway it’s a very visible facility,” Groden said. “If you have questions and don’t know where to go, you stop in the Visitors’ Center and decide.” Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
