Cayuga County will help Moravia with plaza development by foreclosing former gas station

Cayuga County has agreed to foreclose on a former gas station to aid the Village of Moravia in creating a new downtown plaza.

The decision, advanced by the County Legislature’s Government Operations Committee on Wednesday and reported by The Citizen, sets the stage for the property’s transformation following confirmation from the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) that the site is free of contamination.


Located at 143 Main St., the site formerly known as Granny’s Gas Station had been eligible for tax foreclosure for years. The Village of Moravia, which recently secured a $2.25 million NY Forward grant, plans to use the site for a $500,000 plaza intended for public events. This development is part of broader efforts to revitalize Moravia’s downtown area.

The full county Legislature is expected to approve the resolution to transfer the property during its meeting on April 23, marking a positive step for local redevelopment.
