Downtown dreams in the Maple City

HORNELL — The City of Hornell has potential, which was explored at a public hearing to discuss what could happen with a $10 million boost.

Governor Cuomo’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) is in its fourth year, and the program will invest $100 million into 10 additional downtown neighborhoods across the state.

Participating communities are nominated by the state’s 10 Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs) based on the downtown’s potential for transformation, and each community is awarded $10 million to develop a downtown strategic investment plan and implement key catalytic projects that advance the community’s vision for revitalization.
