March 01, 2021

Lewis County Economic Development Seeks Developers for Lyonsdale Property 

Expressions of Interest are being accepted for redevelopment of former industrial site.  

LYONSDALE, NYLewis County Economic Development today released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) that seeks to identify20200124 134636 respondents interested in acquiring and redeveloping a 46-acre former industrial property at 3823 Marmon Road in Lyons Falls, NY.  

Lewis County Economic Development is looking for respondents that have a vision for the property that will support economic growth in the local community and region, including creating new jobs and enhancing the local tax base.  

“The IDA board and staff welcomes creative redevelopment ideas and concepts that will take advantage of the assets Lewis County offers, such as agriculture, our natural resources, and outdoor recreation and tourism industries.  We look forward to seeing proposals that create jobs and enhance the local tax base.” said Executive Director Brittany Davis.  

Up until 2020, the property had been used as a bio-mass to electricity facility and still features infrastructure that can be used by a future occupant of the site. After being acquired by Lewis County Economic Development, other obsolete facilities have been cleared from the site to create areas ready for new construction. The property is located adjacent to an active paper mill and the Moose River and sits just outside the boundary of New York’s Adirondack Park.  

Lewis County Economic Development officials see great potential in the property, including several uses that would fit with the site and the potential to sub-divide the property for multiple uses. “The proximity to watertimber and our strong agricultural basepresent a wide variety of development opportunities,”Davis said. “The property could take on a similar role as an industrial site, but we could also see the site used for housing or recreation. We are looking forward to what creative ideas and concepts result from the RFEI process.”
