The plan will focus specifically on redevelopment of Three Rivers Point and adjacent underutilized strategic sites that are hindering redevelopment within the area.
The project will advance projects to the marketplace by providing the following:
A revitalization strategy based on community and stakeholder involvement;
Identification and alignment of grant and financing opportunities for strategic sites and projects;
Assessments of environmental conditions, if any, at strategic sites;
Development of partnerships with property owners, funding agencies and developers; and
Marketing of strategic sites.
The Town of Clay received a grant from the New York State Department of State to prepare a plan to advance redevelopment of historic Three Rivers Point. The purpose of the project is to develop a plan for the Point that will be a catalyst for redevelopment of adjacent underutilized, vacant, abandoned or contaminated properties. Local, regional and state partners will be involved throughout the project to help promote redevelopment of strategic sites. The comprehensive redevelopment plan developed under this project will be based on a community vision and balance environmental, economic and community needs. It will also evaluate land use, zoning, property ownership, utilities, transportation issues and environmental constraints that may be impediments to redevelopment.
