The project is called Western New York STAMP. It's a 1,000-plus acre plot of land in the Town of Alabama.
Developers are struggling to attract tech-based business to the park because of a large amount of swampland.
Developers say they are waiting for a permit from the Army Corp of Engineers to re-develop the wetlands. Today, Chuck Schumer urged the approval of that permit.
But the Army Corp of Engineers responded, saying:
"No permit application has yet been filed with the Corps... We are dedicated to achieving a balance that protects aquatic resources and allows reasonable and necessary development to go forward."
The Genesee County Economic Development Center says it is still working with local government on the STAMP project, as well.
