Kody Sprague, Sprague Development, developer of the Nannen bat factory site at 11-13 Elizabeth Street, gave a progress report of the new construction taking place. New tennants include an 8 lane bowling alley (scheduled to be open this fall) and Tim and Bonnie’s Pizza. Sprague is holding a Facebook contest to name the new development – go to their page, Sprague Development, and make a suggestion.
Kody has been very active in the Ellicottville community recently, working with the Centurion organizers utilize the Elizabeth St. property for their materials and supplies, and they also used the Washington St., parking lot for the actual bike storage. For Octoberfest, the parking lot on Washington St (Coffee Culture-Subway-Dom’s Butcher) will host the carnival, as it has for years. He is also interested in working with the Ellicottville Recreational Trail committee on possibly utilizing part of the Elizabeth Street property.
