The State of New York is investing $10 million in each of ten communities (identified by the Regional Economic Development Councils) to help them transform into more vibrant communities. Downtown Middletown was selected as the Mid-Hudson Region’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) community. Middletown is in the midst of a renaissance, with city government, many non-profits, educational institutions and the business community all working together toward making Middletown into a more robust downtown that serves all residents of the City and the surrounding region. Much has already been accomplished; with an infusion of state technical and financial assistance under the DRI, Downtown Middletown could see this progress continue and expand in new ways.
You are invited to join the conversation about the opportunities for Downtown Middletown!
The next DRI Committee Meeting on January 11th at 5 PM at Thrall Library, 11 Depot St, Middletown, NY 10940
What is a DRI Strategic Plan?
The product of this study will be a DRI Strategic Investment Plan. This plan will include an assessment of downtown assets and opportunities. It will also define a unique community vision that will guide and direct investment within and around the Downtown. The plan will also identify the priority economic development, transportation, housing, and community projects for the State to invest the $10 million, and which can be leveraged for additional investment.
