Planning Committee To Hold First Meeting About $10 Million Norwich Revitalization Grant
Published: February 7th, 2022

NORWICH – The City of Norwich was selected as one of the Southern Tier region recipients of a $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) grant.

The DRI is a statewide initiative that provides funding for high priority projects designed to boost local economies and transform city centers into vibrant neighborhoods where the next generation of New Yorkers will want to live, work, and raise a family.

The DRI program is guided by a Local Planning Committee (LPC) comprised of local stakeholders from a variety of relevant backgrounds, industries, and sectors and is responsible for overseeing the development of the Norwich DRI Strategic Investment Plan (SIP). The purpose of the SIP is to identify, describe, and recommend transformative projects for DRI funding.

The first LPC meeting will be held virtually at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, February 9.

This meeting will kick off the Norwich DRI planning process and will cover the following topics: team introductions and roles and responsibilities, an overview of the DRI program, scope and timeline of the planning process, an introduction to the City’s DRI application, and a visioning exercise with the LPC.

This meeting is open to all members of the public, with time reserved at the end of the meeting for public comment. The City of Norwich is committed to hosting open, inclusive, and accessible meetings.
