A Rochester business leader says the state has hired a consultant to study Eastman Kodak’s sprawling business park, considered crucial to the area’s economic future as the iconic photography company’s financial woes continue.
Sandra Parker of the Rochester Business Alliance tells the Democrat and Chronicle that officials in the Cuomo administration say the state has hired a consultant to conduct a valuation of Eastman Business Park. The newspaper reports that hiring a consultant is a necessary step in any sale of the property by Kodak.
The business park spreads over 1,200 acres in Rochester and Greece. It has more than 30 tenants.
The site’s future, made uncertain by Kodak’s bankruptcy filing in January, was discussed earlier this week when Rochester community leaders met with state officials in Albany.
