It’s been an honor to be in the Moriah Business Park for 15 years, hopefully, we’ll be there 15 or 20 more or even longer.

James Kahler-Pre-Tech Precision, Machining Manager

Without significant help from Essex County IDA, the new Moriah Health Center would not have been built. The Essex County IDA gave the Town a tremendous amount of help in regards to putting the financing package, assistance with the regulatory requirements and site development. The town and community appreciates all that they have done to help make this a reality.

I could have gone anywhere, and I ended up back here in Essex County, upstate New York. I still think we live in the most beautiful place in the country. “Made in Adirondacks” has intrinsic green benefits. We’ve been welcomed with open arms in all situations.

There is room to build businEssex in the Adirondack Park; and by the way, there’s an outstanding quality of life here.

Keith McKeever, Adirondack Park Agency spokesman

Everyone of these agencies, including the Essex County IDA have streamlined their process to assist us, they’ve held us to all the necessary requirements, but have been very responsive. I’ve been very pleased.

Peter Ward, Owner of Adirondack Meat Co.

I think that this is tremendous not just for Willsboro, but for Essex County and the North Country. I would be in town with Libby and we would see the building and think that there has there has got to be some kind of creative reuse and now we have it and it is something that the community can be proud of as well as Eli.

The people at the Essex County IDA (Industrial Development Agency) and the (state) Small Business Administration in Plattsburgh were a big help.

Joseph Bodette, Owner of Frenchman’s Restaurant located in Crown Point, NY

This will maximize the use of this raw material. I think it is about as green a project as you can get. This is a perfect example of how you can do business in the Adirondack Park.
