Arts, water projects score state funding

(Continued)

ELIZABETHTOWN —

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.

UTILITY UPGRADES

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.”
