JAMESTOWN – The second public meeting to address the City of Jamestown Chadakoin River Revitalization Study will be held in the auditorium of the Robert H. Jackson Center tonight (Tuesday) from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Chadakoin River Revitalization Study is a 16-month planning effort focused on opportunities for economic development and community recreation along the Jamestown riverfront. City Development director Steve Centi says there were pleased with the turnout for the first meeting earlier this year and is hoping just as many people come out tonight.
The city of Jamestown was awarded three NY State planning grants targeted at the Chadakoin River and the properties near the River. These grants include two Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) studies and a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program (LWRP) study. To make the most effective and efficient use of the grant funds, the City elected to merge the separate studies into one project.
Tonight’s event will serve to update the community on the progress of the project and provide a continued forum for public discussion about the potential of the riverfront to become a greater community asset.
The meeting will be conducted by LaBella Associates, P.C. in conjunction with the Jamestown Urban Renewal Agency and the City of Jamestown Waterfront Advisory Committee. It is open to the public. Additional project information can be found at www.chadakoinrevitalization.com.
