Schenectady wins $10 mil for downtown

The money will be used to improve the city’s downtown

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the awarding of $10 million through the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative in the GE Theatre at Proctors Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019.

“With this funding, Schenectady will further enhance its vibrant downtown and transform the Mohawk Harbor into a top regional destination with unique waterfront amenities that will benefit residents and visitors,” Governor Cuomo said. “The Harbor will be more walkable and better connected to the rest of the city, while key developments will fuel economic growth for the local community and the surrounding region. This is only the latest example of how the DRI Initiative has fueled the resurgence of Capital Region communities, allowing them to unleash their full potential.”
