Local Officials Wait for State Details on Proposed Pharmaceutical Plant for Chautauqua County


DUNKIRK, NY - Chautauqua County's economy has been shaken in recent years with plant closings and now the possible loss of Dunkirk's power plant. But local officials say the state may have a new project in the works to bring a major factory to their area.

2 on Your Side spoke with leaders who attended a key regional meeting on economic development today.

Unfortunately the State Labor Office in Dunkirk has been a busier place in recent years with plant closings and job cuts in parts of Chautauqua County. That's why reports of a $200 Million dollar economic development project for the county in Governor Cuomo's state budget proposal brightens the mood of local officials. Chautauqua County Executive Vince Horrigan says "We are very, very excited by renewed iniatives and investments in the area but it's been difficult."

Construction halted for Chautauqua Amphitheater


CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Construction on the Chautauqua Amphitheater has been put on hold after a restraining order was issued on Monday.

The New York State Supreme Court issued a temporary restraining order on Monday that halts the construction on the Amphitheater.

The Chautauqua institution says they will continue to move forward with planning, logistics and procurement of materials.

A hearing has been scheduled for February 1. 

Construction on the amphitheater had been approved in December. 

The design look very similar to the current amphitheater, but changes include fewer pillar to improve sight lines, expanding the bowl with new seating, and improving accessibility, that will be ADA-compliant.
