January 20 (Fri) Infrastructure Fund Meeting
Please be reminded that this Friday, January 20, The Committee of 100 is joining New Castle County in sponsoring a workshop for the development community on how to take advantage of the State's New Jobs Infrastructure Fund, which was created last spring.
The proposed Amazon.com fulfillment center in Middletown has been approved for funding under this program. New Castle County can serve as the local government partner/sponsor for projects located in unincorporated areas of the County.
The Fund is designed to provide economic assistance for renovation, construction or any other type of improvements to roads, utilities and related infrastructure in order to attract new businesses to Delaware, or for the expansion of existing Delaware businesses, when such an economic development opportunity would create a significant number of direct, permanent, quality, full-time jobs.
Specific projects, amounts and terms will be approved by an Infrastructure Investment Committee, comprised of the Director of the Delaware Economic Development Office, the Secretary of the Delaware Department of Transportation, the Co-Chairs of the Joint Committee on Capital Improvement and a member of the private sector who shall be appointed by the Governor.
The General Assembly appropriated $40,000,000 to the Fund in the Fiscal Year 2012 Final Bond and Capital Improvement Act.
As mentioned, in order to apply for these funds a local government must be a project sponsor. New Castle County is interested in meeting with local developers, bankers, and commercial/industrial realtors to discuss development projects that meet the requirements for funding.
Please plan to attend the meeting which will be held on January 20, 2012 (this Friday) from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. at the New Castle County Multi-Purpose Room in the Gilliam Building, 87 Reads Way, New Castle, 19720. The facility is located next to the New Castle County Government Center Building in the Corporate Commons Business Park.
The draft agenda for the meeting will be as follows:
1) Review the Infrastructure Fund Guidelines and Application
2) Review New Castle County Sewer Capacity Map
3) Questions & Answers I hope you'll be able to join us on January 20.
