The Town of Schoharie, in partnership with the Town of Esperance and SALT Development, received $50,000 for the Central Bridge Community Planning Project. Funds from the New York State Community Development Block Grant Program were allocated for the project during Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council 2016 awards ceremony.
“The hamlet of Central Bridge has a lot of potential,” Schoharie Town Supervisor Chris Tague states. “Plans are underway to address water and septic infrastructure needs and now with these funds, streetscape and housing improvements will follow.”
SALT Development Project Director Jerrine Corallo is working closely with local leaders and the Project Advisory Committee to coordinate a community development planning process focused on housing and streetscape improvements in the residential hamlet of Central Bridge.
Laberge Group and CLA Site will conduct: 1) Inventory of Assets and Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats (SWOT) Analysis; 2) Complete Streets Plan including concept plan, cost estimates and matrix of implementation funds; 3) Housing Conditions and Vacant Property Assessment Survey and Report with recommendations and matrix of implementation funds.
SALT will oversee grant administration and compliance, public outreach and will conduct a Community Center SWOT Analysis.
If you are interested in being involved in the project, contact Jerrine Corallo at JerrineC@SALTDevelopment.org or (518) 702-5017.
