COVID-19 Economic Task Force
The Village of Cooperstown has been working with the County’s COVID-19 Economic Task Force to create a Business Impact Survey. The Village of Cooperstown is an economic engine for our region, and it is important that we get a great response from Village businesses. We hope your business will participate.
We encourage you to take a few minutes to fill out the Otsego County Business Impact Survey [link below] to help us better understand the needs of our local business community during the COVID-19 crisis. We want to help you and our local business community in every way we can. Your responses will help us assess the depth of the ongoing damage done by this health crisis. By completing this economic impact survey, you’ll be arming the Village and County with information that we can use to assist us and also share with legislators and the media, so that together we can address the economic impact of COVID-19.

The Village of CooperstownHistory
Cooperstown, New York, (population 1,853) is recognized by most Americans as the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. But it is the delightful small town of rural traditions, restored historic buildings, and myriad cultural attractions that visitors tend to remember just as much. Located in the central region of the state, Cooperstown was settled in the late 18th century by William Cooper, father of novelist James Fenimore Cooper, whose novels were set in and around Cooperstown.
