Gita Nandan and Elizabeth Demetriou went to Albany to attend the NY Rising Conference with all 102 Communities. Gov. Cuomo presided and encouraged “thinking big and out of the box”. Both downstate and upstate communities presented potential projects and their process, representing a wide range of ideas, and methods of working together.
Gov. Cuomo’s competition categories were announced at the event. This link is a document that outlines each of the eight. Winning one of these categories will provide an extra $3million to the community. We are pushing hard to win the outreach and community participation – help us! by attending our Public Meetings, commenting, and participating in the process.
