The Seneca Falls Development Corporation (SFDC) is inviting Seneca Falls residents, business owners, and community leaders to planned public Community Workshops to discuss the proposed 2018 Town of Seneca Falls Economic Development Plan.
The first open workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 11th from 6pm – 7:30pm in the main meeting room at the Seneca Falls Recreation Center (35 Water Street in Seneca Falls.) The purpose of this initial workshop is to discuss the proposed draft in more detail and gather public input before the final version is submitted to the Seneca Falls Town Council for consideration.
The second open workshop will be held on Thursday, April 26th from 6pm – 7:30pm at the same location to finalize any proposed changes from the initial workshop and draft the accompanying Action Matrix for the upcoming 2018 Town of Seneca Falls Economic Development Plan.
A copy of the proposed draft is available online at http://senecafallsdevcorp.org/plan and people are welcome to download or read the document prior to the workshop.
“With the previous version of the Seneca Falls Economic Development Plan being ten years out of date, it was imperative that the plan be updated to coincide with State and regional trends, local shifts, and policy changes,” explained SFDC Director, Greg Zellers. “We have a lot of work to do if we’re going to revitalize and reinvigorate Seneca Falls, and this updated plan will prove to be a key asset in our push to stimulate economic growth.”
Each workshop will include a discussion period where the purpose, contents, and implementation of the proposed plan will be discussed so attendees can better understand the changes and additions made to the original plan. Community input is welcome as the plan enters its final stage before presentation to the Town Council for adoption.
“The revised draft is the culmination of a months-long effort to update the Economic Development Plan for Seneca Falls,” added SFDC Chair Joell Murney-Karsten. “Through community meetings and the harvesting of valuable input from residents, business owners, and officials alike, we’re excited at the kind of change this can inspire.”
Refreshments will be served and provided by Generations Bank. To ensure suitable space, interested attendees are encouraged to inquire or RSVP via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
