The last round of government approval needed to give the greenlight to Greenidge’s expansion, is the Torrey Town Planning board.
Torrey is a small, rural town in the heart of the Finger Lakes, situated on the west side of Seneca Lake.The Planning Board is reviewing a site plan application for Greenidge at it’s meeting on April 19th.
