The town hall style meetings that will launch a massive grant funding initiative in the southern Genesee River Valley begin today at 4:00pm at the Willing Town Hall offices.

The full schedule of meetings can be found below.

You might wonder what the heck is an “LWRP?” Well according to the website it is a NYS Department of State project with specific goals:

” Local Waterfront Revitalization Program is a locally prepared land and water use plan for a community’s developed, natural, public, and/or working waterfronts. It provides a comprehensive framework within which a community’s vision for its waterfront can be formalized. Working in partnership with the Department of State, a community reaches consensus on the future of its waterfront, establishes local policies and outlines the implementation techniques it will use to achieve its vision.

Benefits of an Approved LWRP:

  • Presents a unified vision for the waterfront
  • Helps governments work together to improve the economy and environment
  • Identifies future projects, land and water uses
  • Establishes long-term partnership among local governments, community organizations and the State
  • Increases a community’s chances to obtain funding for local projects “
