Lancaster IDA meeting spurs unintended controversy
Lee Chowane
What really was the cause of Supervisor Dino Fudoli’s bringing to light his comments presented in Tuesday morning’ Buffalo News report was the result of the opening comments I made at the LIDA meeting. The intent of my addressing the board was not to create controversy or demean any LIDA member but to gather information on the LIDA’ process and to question the board’s reasoning for granting IDA’S that many in the public felt were unwarranted.

ECHDC TO ISSUE A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR DONOVAN BLOCK SITE
The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) Board of Directors directed agency staff to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the site of the former Donovan State Office Building at a meeting held today. The RFP will be issued on May 2, 2011 and submissions are due by June 30, 2011.



ECHDC acquired the Donovan Building in 2008. At that time, it was anticipated that the building would be demolished to make the site ready for development under the terms of a 2007 non-binding Pre-Development Agreement with Benderson Development, LLC. Since that time, ECHDC has determined that the best use of the Donovan Building is adaptive reuse. ECHDC has invested approximately $7 million in remediation to date, including the removal of harmful materials and interior demolishment. As a result of these remediation efforts and the soundness of the building’s underlying structure, ECHDC believes that the site has significant potential for redevelopment.
