Time to talke about transformational projects in downtown Wellsville

From the Village of Wellsville:

Wellsville, NY, May 16, 2023 – The Village of Wellsville is proud to announce the first meeting of the Wellsville NY Forward (NYF) Local Planning Committee (LPC). This meeting will take place at the American Legion Post 702, located at 23 Jefferson Street. Wellsville, NY 14895, on Tuesday, June 6, 2023, at 6:00 p.m. The Village of Wellsville is the recipient of the $4.5 million New York State NY Forward award for the Western New York region, which will be used to fund transformational projects in downtown Wellsville.

The Village of Wellsville was nominated for the NY Forward program by the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council and ultimately selected by New York State for the $4.5 million award based on the Village’s application, which demonstrated significant potential for new investment and economic revitalization. The LPC will collaborate with State partners and a consultant team to develop a Strategic Investment Plan that will guide the implementation of catalytic projects that advance the community’s vision for revitalization. The meeting will provide an overview of the NY Forward program, the Strategic Investment Plan components, and the Village’s NY Forward application. Additionally, the LPC will discuss the Open Call for Projects process, whereby projects can be submitted for funding consideration, and the public survey aimed at gathering community input.

Whether you are a resident, business owner, employer, or potential investor, the Village encourages and welcomes your participation. While this a working meeting of the Local Planning Committee, the meeting is open to the public and there will be an opportunity for public comments at the end. A series of public workshops and events will also be scheduled to provide residents with an opportunity to participate directly in the process.
