On March 2, 2023, it was announced that the Village would receive the $4.5 million award!

We are just at the beginning of the award implementation process, which starts with developing a Strategic Investment Plan to revitalize our downtown. The State will select a Local Planning Committee made up of community leaders and other stakeholders to lead these efforts, supported by a team of private sector experts and state planners. The Strategic Investment Plan will examine local assets and opportunities to identify projects that align with each community’s vision and that are poised for implementation. Funding will be awarded for selected projects from the Strategic Investment Plan that have the greatest potential to jumpstart revitalization and generate new opportunities for long-term growth.

Future updates and opportunities for involvement will be posted here on the Village’s website.
