 Watkins Glen Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI)  
Open Call for Potential DRI Projects

The Watkins Glen LPC is seeking proposals for private projects to be considered for DRI funding. The purpose of the Open Call for Potential DRI Projects is to hear from members of the community who have potential transformative projects on private sites that provide economic and community benefits. This process will enable the LPC to fully vet private projects that could transform the downtown, in the open. Submissions should include capital/construction projects; demonstration of commitment of private funding sources; demonstration of the project’s transformative nature and potential community benefits. All submissions should include as much information as possible on potential projects in order to demonstrate that the idea is feasible and will have a meaningful impact on downtown Watkins Glen.

The Local Planning Committee is looking for community feedback on some potential projects. This is not a final list and some of these projects are still in development.

The public will also have an opportunity to weigh in at the next Public Workshop on March 7 from 6-8pm at the Community Center.
