Canton Industrial Park Expansion Project

At a Glance




St. Lawrence County IDA

In 2005, the St. Lawrence County Industrial Development Agency, along with St. Lawrence County, the town and
village of Canton, and St. Lawrence NYSARC signed a memorandum of understanding to create a light industrial
park in Canton.
The first Canton Industrial Building was completed in 2012, and a 2012 North Country Regional Economic
Development Council CFA award enabled the SLCIDA to move ahead with the park’s expansion.
On June 26, 2014, the SLCIDA authorized a contract in the amount of $544,000 with Acts II Construction
(Gouverneur, New York) to proceed with the expansion work, which involves site grading of the remaining 17+
acres to balance the landscape, disburse the 26,000 CY of spoilage from the County’s jail project as well as
control any watershed onto neighboring properties. This work will be performed in accordance with the SWPPP
prepared by Tisdel Associates for the SLCIDA’s submission to New York State Department of Environmental
Infrastructure included in this project will be potable water, fire hydrant installation, sanitary sewer complete with
a necessary pump station and approximately 780 feet of asphalt road construction. These infrastructure
improvements will define five shovel ready building sites of approximately 3.5 acres each.
