A meat processing plant could be in the works for outer Watertown.
Developer Mike Lundy is in the process of purchasing 150 acres near the campus of Jefferson-Lewis BOCES off of Route 3.
Lundy previously wanted to help bring a meat processing plant to the Jefferson County Corporate Park. Car Freshner and others objected, so Lundy now wants to create an agriculture and business friendly area off Route 3–one that could include the processing plant.
The deal to buy the land hasn’t been finalized, but that could be completed by the first portion of next year.
