SCHUYLERVILLE AWARDED NEW YORK MAIN STREET TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE GRANT
The Village of Schuylerville is proud to announce that it has been awarded a New York Main Street- Technical Assistance grant from the New York State Office of Community Renewal. The grant will examine the structural integrity and historical aesthetics of up to ten commercial/residential structures on Broad and Ferry Streets to provide a foundation for pursuing a cost-sharing grant to renovate downtown buildings in the next state funding cycle. The grant was written by Flatley Read, Inc. of Schuylerville, NY, at the direction of the Village of Schuylerville Board of Trustees.
“The village is excited to be awarded this New York Main Street TA grant. This is a great opportunity for Village officials to partner with business and community leaders to create a vision for the structures on Broad and Ferry streets.”
“The village would like to thank the business owners and community leaders who participated in our monthly meetings to help craft this proposal.”
“I am ready to get to work on this. We will begin by engaging with community members to create a long-term economic transformation through small, incremental projects. One step at a time, we will work together to support and grow locally-owned businesses, cultivate and develop entrepreneurship, and create an inclusive, and accessible community.”
