U.S. Gypsum Corp. plans to spend $23 million to upgrade its paper mill in Oakfield, Genesee County, and add 12 production workers, officials said.

The Genesee County Economic Development Center’s board of directors is scheduled to approve a final resolution for the project Thursday.

Board members also are expected to set a date for a public hearing for a proposed 110-unit senior housing development in Batavia. The work is to be done by Niagara County-based firm Calamar.

USG Corp., based in Chicago, plans to replace and relocate equipment at its Maple Avenue site, which employs 98. It also will take measures to improve the safety, quality and efficiency of the facility, officials announced Monday.

The three-story, 117,000-square-foot complex also will include a lobby and two common rooms, officials said.

The $11 million Calamar project will result in two new full-time jobs and 200 construction jobs, officials said.
