SCRANTON, October 28, 2016 – State Sen. John Blake (D-Lackawanna/Luzerne/Monroe) today applauded the announcement of a $1.5 million state grant for the development of a Life Sciences Business Park in Mayfield Borough.

The $1.5 million grant, awarded to the NorthEast Environmental Technology Center Associates through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP), will be utilized to establish a Life Sciences Business Park in Mayfield Borough. The project includes the redevelopment of an existing 95,000 square foot office building into a Life Sciences and Environmental Technology Incubator and developing an adjacent 16-acre parcel for the construction of two additional buildings totaling 210,000 square feet.

“The redevelopment of the existing structure into a Life Sciences and Environmental Technology Incubator will undoubtedly bring family sustaining jobs, private investment and economic development to Mayfield Borough,” Blake said. “When completed, a formerly underutilized and underperforming asset will become a state-of-the-art environmental technology incubator and will ensure our county and our communities can further capitalize on innovation in the life sciences and environmental protection. I applaud Governor Wolf and his team for identifying the importance of this project to our region and delivering this vital state funding to Lackawanna County.”

Blake noted that the total business park would be nearly 300,000 square feet when complete.
