ELLICOTT - Plans are under way for Jamestown MVP LLC's Allen Street plant.
Road and parking lot construction are expected for the company's new facility that could result in up to 100 jobs being created in the area.
A building permit is expected to be sought for the company, reports Town Attorney Bill Wright. The site plan for its facility was recently discussed during a town Planning Board meeting.
The company bought the former Sysco property from the Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency, along with property behind that from Acu-Rite. Jamestown MVP will share space with Maplevale for it to make throw away-coated plastic products that will not break down in landfills. Recycled residue it will use does not produce waste in the products it makes such as plates and cups.
According to the Planning Board minutes, there will be no changes to the outside of the building, which is in the city and will use Jamestown water, sewer and electric.
Richard Dixon, chief financial officer with the county IDA, said state and Buffalo-Niagara Enterprise officials brought the idea for the company to them. He said company officials had looked at other places for their facility but decided on the Allen Street one.
Jacob Deutsche with Jamestown MVP, LLC could not be reached to comment recently.
