The ongoing effort to improve and market a former industrial brownfield site in North Tonawanda received a boost today as National Grid provided a $190,000 redevelopment grant to Lumber City Development Corp.
The funding will be used to support work at the 23-acre Buffalo Bolt Business Park, a business park along Oliver Street that was the former home of Buffalo Bolt Corp. and Roblin Steel.
With the grant and other major funding sources, Buffalo Bolt Business Park will eventually be home to light industrial and manufacturing businesses.
Lumber City Development Corp. develops and implements programs, projects and activities to create or stimulate economic and community development in the City of North Tonawanda.
National Grid's Brownfield Redevelopment program provides grants to fund utility-related infrastructure improvements and other costs that are necessary to redevelop brownfield sites or vacant buildings.
