We had a great Community Meeting this past Tuesday, with more than 150 people in attendance. Residents and business owners turned out to learn more about the DRI process and the projects that were submitted for consideration as part of the NYS Downtown Revitalization Initiative $10 million grant funding.
We continue to welcome public participation and preliminary feedback on proposed projects being considered under the DRI grant program. While the portal will be open through May 21, members of the public are strongly encouraged to provide feedback by Tues., May 17. The portal featuring project posters and feedback forms is now available at www.amityvilledri.com/proposals
Those who attended the Community Meeting are encouraged to submit their feedback forms to Village Hall by Tues. May 17 or email to email@example.com Anyone wishing to view the presentation slides and recording of the meeting may visit amityvilledri.com/documents
We hope the community will join in and provide feedback to help select and shape the projects we submit in July to New York State. Projects will need to align with and support the vision and goals we have developed for this initiative and be a catalyst for revitalizing our downtown.
A Local Planning Committee meeting also will be held at on Wed., May 18th, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Amityville Fire Department, 55 W. Oak St., Amityville. This working committee meeting is open to the public but is not intended as an interactive public workshop. Attendees may offer comments at the end of the meeting.
