Notice to the Community of Watkins Glen

We’d like to update the community on the $10 Million DRI award from NYS to Watkins Glen. First, we are excited about this opportunity and the planning process is just beginning.  In the communities that were awarded the DRI last year, this planning process took nearly a year to complete.  There will be a VERY PUBLIC process used to develop the plan and project list.  The projects put forth in the DRI application were submitted to identify potential investment and related jobs.  Because a project is listed does not guarantee any grant funding.  The $10M is designed to leverage private sector match.  We will work diligently to have a mechanism to ensure a fair and transparent process.
