BOA Projects

In December of 2013, the City was awarded a Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) Step 2 grant from the New York State Department of State. This grant provides funding for the second of a three step program for the City to identify underutilized former industrial areas of the city and to explore ways to revitalize them and bring them back into productive use. Portions of the Step 2 funding will be used to do a downtown market study and preliminary design and cost estimates for the Heritage Block parking area and the Museum District streetscape projects.
