Economic development an ongoing process for Village of Owego

first_imgAfter Owego was awarded the funding, more than fifty projects were proposed to receive some of that funding. From that list, a 15-person committee led by Baratta and Tioga County’s Director of Economic Development and Planning Leann Tinney narrowed it down to $13 million worth of projects. From there, the state’s economic development council eventually selected the 17 projects to be funded, for a total of $9.8 million. OWEGO (WBNG) — One year after winning ten million dollars, Owego’s mayor says the village’s future is brighter than ever. Owego was one of the regional winners of New York State’s 2018 Downtown Revitalization Initiative. That ten million dollars is funding 17 projects in the village, ranging from improvements to the fire station to the creation of a brand new art park, a park that incorporates things like sculptures with the natural landscape around it. “Obviously we want jobs. In a downtown like this, a lot of jobs are in retail; we do have some manufacturing and they got a little bit of money to expand their operations,” Baratta told 12 News Thursday. “Obviously we want to attract people here, and we want them to want to stay here.” Mayor Mike Baratta says the village has two economic goals for the use of this funding.last_img read more
