TechCity’s Master Plan for redevelopment got a much anticipated boost earlier this month when the Final Generic Environmental Impact Statement (FGEIS) was accepted as complete by the Town of Ulster Board. A unanimous vote on the FGEIS made way for TechCity to continue its redevelopment plans which include construction of new, build-to-suit facilities, demolition of obsolete structures, creation of large indoor parking facilities (adaptive reuse of existing buildings) and installation of solar panels as a green power source for the campus. Town officials and TechCity have worked for several years to get to this point and all are pleased that the projects can move forward. Another example of how TechCity is a leading-edge hub for technology innovation and manufacturing on the East coast.

TechCity regularly permits local police, fire and rescue units to utilize the grounds for training purposes.

This week, the Circus came to town and set up the big top right here at TechCity. For several years, TechCity has hosted the Cole Bros.

It has always been the vision that TechCity would be a central hub for the community, be it in the form of businesses operating here or as way to bring the local people together.
