Westport The Town of Westport will be hosting a public meeting on Nov. 19, at 6 p.m. in the town hall to discuss the Town’s recently completed economic revitalization strategy.
“For the last 10 years, the town of Westport has made Economic Development a priority. A number of projects including Hamlet expansion and development of an economic revitalization strategy have been ongoing leveraging local resources, community volunteers and utilizing grant funding. The purpose of the Economic Revitalization Strategy is to develop a strategy for Westport and to advance priority projects in the community that will spur revitalization. The town of Westport assembled a team of local, state and regional partners with the assistance from a professional consultant team to develop an Economic Development Strategy. The town’s partners included the New York State Department of State, Essex County IDA and a Project Advisory Committee composed of local stakeholders and residents of the community and region.
A draft of the Economic Revitalization Strategy is nearing completion. The report was put together by River Street Planning and Development and funded in part by the New York State Department of State through a grant provided under the Environmental Protection Fund Local Waterfront Revitalization Program is now available on line by going to the Town’s web site at westportny.net.
Printed copies will be available for viewing at the Town Hall, and at our Libraries in Westport and Wadhams.
