Mayor Barlow Invites Public to Downtown Revitalization Meeting
Oswego Mayor Billy Barlow announced information regarding the first public engagement session for the Downtown Revitalization Initiative. Earlier this year, the City of Oswego competed for and won $10 million in State grant money to revitalize downtown Oswego from an initiative put forth by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
"We've made it clear from the beginning that we value the public's input and feedback as we begin to develop plans for use of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative funding. I am excited to introduce the community to our team from the Department of State and Stantec, who will help us design our plan. It is very important to me to include City of Oswego residents in this process and to hear their ideas for use of the funding," said Mayor Barlow. "My administration worked incredibly hard to submit a realistic and diverse proposal we were proud of during the application process. Winning the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative provides Oswego with an extraordinary opportunity, and now is the time for our community to come together to develop a plan to transform downtown and capitalize on such an opportunity," the Mayor concluded.
The first Downtown Revitalization public engagement session will be held on Thursday, December 1 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the McCrobie Civic Center, 41 Lake Street, Oswego, and will be open to all members of the public.
