The Steuben County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) is the designated economic development organization for Steuben County tasked with business development activities in the County. A major area of development in recent years has been the development of opportunities around our rail infrastructure. The IDA has owned the Bath and Hammondsport rail line since 1996 and in 2012 received $727,578 in funding through the New York State Consolidated Funding Application process to rehabilitate two miles of track from the main line in Bath to the IDA-owned industrial park. The last train to run on this section of track was in 1992. The rehabilitation is being done in partnership between the State of New York, the IDA and the B&H Rail Corporation who operates the line. Work is expected to be done in mid-2013, opening up over 50 acres of land for development along the rail line.
