SPECIFIC REQUESTS

Matt Rogers, of Saratoga Associates, addressed the Board about the 2010 Adirondack Park Community Smart Growth Grant Program. Mr. Rogers outlined the potential for the Village to receive grant funds for a Hamlet Revitalization and Reinvestment Study. The study would cover all vacant and underutilized properties in the Village that are located entirely in the Adirondack Park. A business opportunity gap analysis would identify what business uses the community could support and give Village business owners and investors ideas for developing sustainable businesses in the Village. The study would also identify any necessary changes to local land use policies. The study could be used to secure additional grants for the Village and assist current business owners. $40,000 is available through the Smart Growth Grant program; no match is required. Mr. Rogers, a Village resident, offered to prepare the grant application on behalf of the Village free of charge as a service to the community.

Resolution #40 approved, authorizing Matt Rogers and Saratoga Associates to prepare necessary documents for application to the Smart Growth Grant Program on behalf of the Village at no cost to the Village.

Resolution #41 approved, authorized mayoral signature on 2010 Adirondack Park Community Smart Growth Grant application for Hamlet Revitalization Study in the amount of $40,000.
