Industrial Development Agency

Minutes & Agenda Board Info

The mission of the Town of Erwin Industrial Development Agency (TEIDA) is to foster economic development in the Town of Erwin. To accomplish this task, TEIDA offers many opportunities, partnering with industry and specific developments to construct infrastructure improvements and eligibility for New York State economic incentives.

In 2001, the Town of Erwin Industrial Development Agency (TEIDA) purchased the Corning Painted Post Airport, a General Aviation, Public Use airport, featuring a lighted 3,270 paved runway and taxiways. The Feasibility Study for this development demonstrated that the five-year capital improvement plan for the airport would more than double the $1.2 million economic impact the airport has on the surrounding community. Since purchasing the airport, TEIDA has completed over $10 million in capital improvements and more than doubled the number of aircraft based at the airport.

TEIDA has contracted with Costa Flying Service as the Fixed Base Operator for the airport. In addition, Costa Flying Service offers a full range of service for the public and business communities including scenic air tours, air taxi, flight instruction, airplane maintenance, and a unique service restoring historic aircraft, the only such service on the east coast.

As the agent for the Town of Erwin and private corporations, TEIDA has completed over $37 million in infrastructure improvements including roads, railroad sidings, a bridge, municipal wells, doubled the size of the Waste Water Treatment Plant, doubled the capacity of the sewer lift station, and established a new water source which serves the Erwin Industrial Park. These projects have supported the retention of over 1,325 and the creation of over 2,000 high skill, high wage manufacturing jobs, created the capacity to support significant industrial growth in the Town of Erwin.
