Glens Falls planners and city officials have had the job for the last few months of deciding how to spend $10 million. The money comes in the form of a grant from the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative.
They came up with more than a dozen programs and initiatives ranging from a year-round farmers’ market to a “race for space” contest.
Plans were presented to the public at a Feb. 23 meeting. The final wish list will be reviewed by a statewide committee and then passed along to the governor, according to Ed Bartholomew, president of EDC Warren County.
Each proposed project will be reviewed. Bartholomew said the proposals total more than $10 million. If all 14 of them are approved, the city will seek other funding to make up the difference.
A decision is expected from the state in late summer.
