Geneva IDA delays vote on tax breaks for Lake’s Edge Seneca development

In the wake of public opposition, the Geneva Industrial Development Agency has delayed a vote on a package of tax breaks for the proposed Lake’s Edge Seneca development.

The Finger Lakes Times reports the IDA announced at its meeting this morning that it would not vote on the package. Instead, the agency will consider modifying the terms of the deal, including the amount of the tax breaks and the length over which they would be granted.

Plans call for homes, a hotel, restaurant and microbrewery on what is currently the site of the Geneva American Legion Post home on Lochland Road. The Legion held a groundbreaking this week for its new location in the town of Seneca near the Salvation Army thrift store on Routes 5 & 20.
