Cheese Factory May Open Middletown Location
A new cheesy business could be coming to the Dolson Avenue corridor in Middletown. If all goes according to plan, a 1.1 acre parcel of land off Dolson Avenue will be cranking out delicious cheese within a year or two, The Times Herald Record reports.
However, plans have yet to be submitted to the Middletown Planning Board and a key component is the changing of local zoning laws. Some 17 properties would be affected by the change in designation from limited business to light industrial reports The Record.
Plans have been in the works for some time, Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus told the Record. The as yet unnamed investors, project as many as 50 jobs could be created within five years and 17 in the first year alone.
It seems we hear a lot about closures these days, so it’s nice to hear of a new business getting off the ground in the Hudson Valley.
