Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today traveled to Canandaigua to announce the long-awaited kick off of the North Shore project, a local lakeshore development initiative that will transform 21 acres of dilapidated property into residential, retail and commercial space. The Governor today announced $1.5 million in additional state assistance – on top of $1.5 million designated through the 2013 Regional Economic Development Council process – enabling Phase 1 of the $120 million project to begin this year. The project is expected to create 175 permanent jobs and 400 construction jobs.
