Governor Cuomo Announces
City of Batavia Wins $10,000,000! 
The City of Batavia is the recipient of a $10 million investment through Governor Cuomo’s 2017 Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) program. The DRI program will be a comprehensive approach to boost Batavia’s economy by transforming the downtown into a vibrant neighborhood where the next generation will want to live, work and raise a family. A key component of the DRI program is to advance strategic private and public investments that will provide catalytic impacts to facilitate downtown revitalization.
The purpose of this Request for Information, therefore, is to identify potential projects that can provide economic and community development benefits. Projects will be vetted by the DRI Local Planning Committee (LPC) at meetings open to the public. The LPC will consider each project using the Project Criteria at the end of this form. Projects should be implemented in five years or less and be located within the DRI boundary.
The LPC Committee understands the time period to provide information is short. Consequently provide as much information as you have by the due date.
