On 12/11/02, the OD reported in an article by Tom Lambert that EDGE had withdrawn its application for an Army Corps of Engineers Wetlands permit to build a chip plant.
"Mohawk Valley EDGE's application for the Edic Road site faced
rejection by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers after an environmental
review that included the state and federal agencies.
EDGE officials stressed Tuesday that the project is not in jeopardy.
"We don't think this affects the marketing of the site," said Mark
Reynolds, EDGE's senior vice president of planning and development.
"When we get a developer for the site, then we will apply for a
modified site plan. I have confidence we will be able to get a permit
once we do that," Reynolds said." [emphasis supplied]
In an OD Article today, the lack of the wetlands permit is called "A significant roadblock to attracting a nanotechnology company ."
When will our elected officials realize that EDGE is either incompetent or lazy, and start demanding some answers? It's time to get rid of them!
