The Newark Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) Local Planning Committee (LPC) will have its first meeting at the Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES Conference Center, 131 Drumlin Court, Newark, NY at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. The Village of Newark is the recipient of the $10 million New York State DRI award for the Finger Lakes region, which will propel the transformation of Downtown Newark.
Newark was nominated by the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council based on the downtown’s potential for transformation. A Local Planning Committee will work with state partners and a consultant team to develop a downtown strategic investment plan to guide the implementation of catalytic projects that will advance the community’s vision for revitalization.
The meeting will provide an overview of the DRI program, the DRI strategic plan components, and the projects included in the Village’s DRI application. The LPC will also review and discuss the vision and goals of the project.
Whether you are a resident, business owner, employer or potential investor, the Village encourages and welcomes your participation. The meeting is open to the public and there will be an opportunity for public comments at the end of the meeting.
For those who cannot attend in person, a virtual option will be available. Please register in advance to participate virtually here.
