When the former New York State owned Tryon Residential Center in the Town of Perth, Fulton County closed more than a decade ago, the State deeded the property, which included 515 acres of land with water, sewer gas and electric services on-site, to the Fulton County Industrial Development Agency (IDA). The plan was to convert a portion of the property into shovel ready sites for businesses. The goal was to create jobs to replace the ones lost when Tryon closed and to create new tax base for local taxing jurisdictions.
Today, we’re excited to share that we’re seeing real progress at Tryon. Dr. Shri Verma, a local gastroenterology specialist in Gloversville, New York has purchased from the IDA a 27 acre tract of land that included several buildings. Dr. Verma plans to renovate 1 or more buildings to start a new probiotic business there.
Fulton County offers entrepreneurs like Dr. Verma a strategic location in a pro-business climate. Our community is rich in human resources with talented young job seekers, executive age professionals, and pre-retiree workers within an easy commute, and our high-quality infrastructure are already equipped to serve new business and development opportunities.
