The Village of Cooperstown has been awarded $4.5 Million as part of the New York Forward program for the revitalization of our downtown! A Strategic Investment Plan will be prepared with the oversight of the Local Planning Committee to identify priority projects for State funding. A subset of these projects will be awarded funding by the State.
The NYF project team held a series of information sessions to review the RFP and answer questions. RFP submissions were due on August 2nd, 2023 and projects are now being vetted by the LPC at meetings open to the public.
We invite you to take a brief survey to review each of the 15 projects submitted for funding consideration.
