FRANKFORT, N.Y. (WKTV) - Herkimer County business leaders were at an economic development update in New Hartford Thursday held by The Genesis Group.

The Herkimer County Industrial Development Agency says that the Route 5S Business Park is shovel-ready and they are getting a lot of interest in the site.

The 200-plus acre site is right off the Herkimer Fairgrounds exit on 5S in Frankfort.

Mark Feine of the Herkimer County IDA says that they have been talking to a number of companies and the interest is rising.

"It's perfectly located off of 5S, adjacent to the fairgrounds, 200 acres of greenfield, water, sewer gas, municipal electric," Feine said.

While no contract have been signed, officials say progress regarding populating the site with businesses in the near future is promising.
