Five sites in area get state grants

Five Western New York sites will receive $97,500 under the state's Build Now-NY initiative, Governor George Pataki's office announced.

Riverview Commerce Park, CrossPoint Business Park, Grand Island Gateway Center, Tri-Country Business Park and Muir Woods were awarded the grants along with 18 other sites in 13 counties.

The grants can be used for engineering studies, surveys, environmental assessments, planning, legal expenses and other costs associated with pre-permitting a site, Pataki's office said.
