ILION, N.Y. — The village of Ilion, with assistance from the Herkimer County Industrial Development Agency, has received $2 million in Restore NY assistance to repurpose the Duofold site in the village.

The village plans to put in motion a coordinated effort to improve housing stock, attract private investment, and regain jobs by developing the site into a mixed-use area with 81 market-rate residences. Village officials expect the project will not only beautify the village but also help revitalize it through the attraction and retention of businesses in the area. The project will also boost the village’s tax base and increase property values, they contend.

“This is great news and just continues the positive progress we have with moving the village forward with economic development and many other issues,” Mayor John Stephens said in a news release.
