Final public briefing for DRI Thursday

Published Mar 20, 2018 at 4:00pm

The City of Rome and project consultant Bergmann Associates will host the final public briefing for the Downtown Revitalization Initiative at 6 p.m. on Thursday, at the REACH Center, 209 W. Dominick St. The request for projects to fund with a $10 million grant will then be sent to the state for approvals.

There will be a presentation highlighting the Strategic Investment Plan that defines prioritized projects to be submitted to New York State for approval and funding.

The plan was developed by the Local Planning Committee. It narrowed down a list of possible projects, noting some that will not get DRI funding but will be pursued separately and with other funding. The committee will meet one final time at 3:30p.m. Thursday at the REACH Center. That meeting is open to the public for observation.  

An online survey and comment form, project updates and connected planning project documents can be found at www.RomeRises.com.

The city must submit its Strategic Investment Plan for state approval by the end of the month.
