New York's Urban Development Corporation is looking for requests to develop the now-abandoned Butler Correctional Facility in Wayne County. ESD released an information package online today, asking for potential developers to respond with bids by July 2nd. They're invited to tour the site later this month.
The Butler site has nearly 200 acres of land, and the state says it wants to see that land used in a way that will spur economic development and job creation for the Finger Lakes. Butler was closed four years ago as the prison system consolidated.
