With Cayuga County’s growing economic vitality and lower cost of doing business compared to our more populous neighbors, our rural community offers an attractive package to businesses seeking to locate here.

Visit our “Featured Sites” page to learn about some of the commercial real estate available in our area.  This page features several sites including a newly designated Opportunity Zone located in the northwest quadrant of the City of Auburn.  Opportunity Zones, a product of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, are designed to stimulate new investment in distressed communities nationwide.  Investors in these Opportunity Zones can realize tax benefits, which could include deferral or partial forgiveness of capital gains.
