Governor Kathy Hochul today announced 11 transformational projects in the Village of Tannersville as part of the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative Award. The Awards will leverage the community's rich historic, culture, and natural resources.   

"Earning the nickname of the Painted Village in the Sky for its vibrantly colored buildings and pristine natural environment, Tannersville is already a must-visit destination for art and nature lovers," Governor Hochul said. "This strategic investment will not only enhance the town's natural charm and attract more visitors but will also provide current and future local residents with more affordable housing options, retail and commercial opportunities, and improved mobility for pedestrians and cyclists."

Tannersville is a small community of approximately 550 people situated in the Catskills Forest Preserve with convenient access to miles of pristine wilderness within the Catskill Park, which makes the Village a gateway to the great outdoors in Greene County. The Tannersville revitalization is focused on creating new affordable housing, expanding community services, increasing arts and cultural amenities and improving streetscape walkability and connectivity, among others. Through the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI), the Village is rededicating itself to becoming a vibrant four-season recreation and vacation community that is still affordable for local, long-term residents and newcomers. 

The investments are part of the Governor's ongoing efforts to revitalize the upstate economy and create more opportunities within the Capital Region. The DRI is led by the Department of State providing technical assistance as each participating community develops a Strategic Investment Plan identifying specific projects with a unique vision for the revitalization of the downtown area.
