This year, the IDA has expanded its grant program. The program offers 10 matching fund grants in the amount of $5,000.
Santabarbara said that in his second term as chairman he would also turn his attention to the Hamburg Street corridor.
Last month, the IDA authorized a $4,850 land-use study that would specifically consider uses of the former Grand Union site.
A larger study of the area, released at a town board meeting on Wednesday, May 28, determined that the site may be conducive to a small village or "Main Street" development approach that could line the street with boutique shops, pedestrian walkways and on-the-street parking.
Santabarbara said the IDA has yet to make up its mind about the area and would await the results of the new study.
"We haven't determined the best use yet," said Santabarbara. "It's too early to tell.""
