DRI

Downtown Redevelopment Initiative

July 2017 – Downtown Watkins Glen was selected as the winner of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative in the Southern Tier.

The area selected for revitalization in the Village of Watkins Glen is a walkable, compact area connecting the downtown and a transitional business and residential area to large employers. It benefits from local amenities like the Seneca Lake waterfront, wine trails, arts scene, state park, and an internationally recognized racetrack. The village plans to address issues in the downtown that detract from these amenities, bringing Watkins Glen into the 21st century. The community will use the Downtown Revitalization Initiative to leverage progressive development codes and recent investments in the Watkins Glen International Race Track, to create a sustainable environment for a year-round innovative and prosperous economy.
