Is this the right time to move forward?
We realize this is not the ideal time to present a project to the community. However, a window of opportunity exists that allows Rush-Henrietta to expend the savings it has set aside specifically for this project and at the same time benefit from state aid that will not be available if the project is pursued later. Governor-elect Andrew Cuomo has advocated for changes in state building aid rules. If less building aid is available in the future, it would make the Phase III project significantly more expensive, perhaps preventing it from happening.
