CivicPlus, a software company in Manhattan, is planning to expand its operations and build a new facility in the city's downtown area, according to a news release.
Ten-year plans call for more than 250 new, full-time positions with average wages of more than $45,000. CivicPlus, which was founded in Manhattan in 2001, also will offer internship opportunities.
On Tuesday, the Manhattan City Commission will consider an economic development incentive application to assist CivicPlus with its expansion.
The company's plan includes a new mixed-use, multistory building at the southwest corner of Fourth and Pierre streets, at an estimated cost of about $9 million.
CivicPlus develops, designs and manages award-winning community engagement systems that use advanced technology to connect people with government in new, more efficient ways.
The company presently has 83 employees in Manhattan and provides website solutions for more than 1,000 cities and counties throughout the United States, with international clients in Canada and Australia.
Since 2008, the company has won more than 250 website awards for its clients.
