Arts, water projects score state funding



The building owners are required to provide 50 percent of the cost of renovations, Reynolds said.

“That shows how committed these owners are,” she said, adding there is a tremendous group of volunteers working to improve the village.

Reynolds said the state’s approach to leave decisions up to regional councils is a positive change.

“I believe this money and the idea of regional economic development councils is really making a difference,” she said.


Several other communities received funding for infrastructure or utility upgrades:

▶ Town of Minerva Comprehensive and Facilities Plan, $50,625.

▶ Town of Moriah Waste Water Treatment Plant Study, $30,000.

▶ Town of Willsboro Waste Water Treatment Plant Study, $18,750.

▶ Village of Keeseville Waste Water Plant Study, $30,000.

▶Town of Ticonderoga Stormwater Project, $539,103.

▶ Essex County Cleaner Greener (partnered with ANCA and region), $1,939,668.

▶ Town of Newcomb, waterfront plan, $37,500.

▶ Village of Lake Placid, sewer replacement report, $30,000.

▶ Village of Saranac Lake, sewer upgrade report, $30,000.

 “We were fortunate to get approval on several of the applications that submitted,” Mascarenas said of the Essex County Community Development Office.

“We put a lot of work into all of these projects and try to meet the needs of all our communities. I congratulate all the region for the success they have experienced and look forward to working with them again next year.”
