Jamestown  (CSi)  Jamestown Mayor Dwaine Heinrich says new developments and building project proposals for Jamestown will be forthcoming this month.

On Tuesday’s Wayne Byers Show on CSi Cable 2, the Mayor said, one project is developing a new National Guard Armory planned for land at Jamestown Regional Airport.  For the last several years, the Armory has shared space at the Jamestown Civic Center.  The new facility will allow the National Guard to keep the Armory in Jamestown.


Another proposal that will be looked at is a developer with plans at the site of the former Eagles Club in Downtown Jamestown that will involved tearing down the structure and constructing a new building at that location, a four-story apartment building with 33 low and moderate income units.  The estimated cost of the project is $4.8 million.

The  developer  Commonwealth Companies, says the project is still in the preliminary stages.

Discussion of the developer’s request for a city  payment in lieu of taxes may be discussed at the  City Council’s Finance and Legal Committee meeting on September 24. If all tax breaks requested by the developer are approved, the project could start in the spring of 2020.
