Cuomo today announced that Peekskill will receive $10 million in funding as the Mid-Hudson winner of the fourth round of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative. As in the first three rounds of the DRI, one municipality from each of the state's 10 regional economic development regions is selected as a $10 million winner, marking another overall state goal to target $100 million in funding and investments to help communities boost their economies by transforming downtowns into vibrant neighborhoods where the next generation of New Yorkers will want to live, work and raise a family. "With the downtown revitalization initiative, we challenged local governments to propose innovative ideas to create jobs and drive economic growth," Governor Cuomo said. "Peekskill proposed a brilliant plan that builds on their natural resources including the beautiful waterfront - a magnet that draws people and businesses to the area. And they demonstrated they have the secret ingredient: the capacity to actually get it done. This investment will help Peekskill utilize these assets to maximize their full potential." "Peekskill has so much to offer with arts, entertainment, and restaurants along the waterfront," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "This significant funding as part of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative will continue to grow the downtown area and increase tourism in the area. Through the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council, local projects will build on the city's employment and recreational opportunities, increasing quality of life and strengthening the local economy."

The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) Board of Directors met today and approved three contracts that will move projects forward on Buffalo’s Outer Harbor. The contracts will provide for the architectural and engineering design for projects emphasizing recreation in three unique waterfront zones: First Buffalo River Marina; the vast acreage between Wilkeson Pointe and Bell Slip; and Terminal B. The overall goals of the Outer Harbor project include improving use and enjoyment of the Outer Harbor, enhancing bicycle and pedestrian access and minimizing adverse impacts on communities and the environment. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, through the Buffalo Billion II, has committed $15 million for these projects. “Buffalo’s Outer Harbor holds so much potential,” said ECHDC Board Chair Robert Gioia. “The area is popular with visitors who are enjoying the waterfront thanks to the projects the state has completed at Wilkeson Pointe, Buffalo Harbor State Park and Lakeside Complex, and these additional plans will outline the next steps for Outer Harbor investment, creating even more recreational opportunities and access.” The three board approvals will move forward the initial master planning work already completed for the three waterfront zones on the Outer Harbor.  The Outer Harbor Preferred Plan was approved by the ECHDC Board in June 2019 (Read more here).  The consultant teams will now continue with a scope of work that includes design, construction document development and signature submittals. The first approval is for a contract with Olin Partnership, Ltd dba OLIN for architectural and engineering and design services for a portion of the First Buffalo River Marina Capital Improvements Project. The project will open this space to the public, while retaining boat docking and storage. To allow for increased access, use and sustainability at the First Buffalo River Marina, ECHDC is planning for the following programmatic improvements: Vehicular entrance, circulation, loading and limited parking for marina users Boardwalks and pathways for pedestrian and bicycle circulation Soil remediation, site grading, stormwater management, landscape, water feature and habitat restoration Marine structures and shoreline improvements Relocation of Queen City Bike Ferry landing and related circulation Site access, safety and security for various areas and types of users Connecting Terminal Grain Elevator activation, asbestos remediation and interpretive elements Outdoor winter boat storage areas Free standing kiosk to include concessions, shaded seating and restrooms Site and architectural utilities infrastructure Lighting, signage and wayfinding OLIN is a women-owned full-service design business with more than 40 years of experience in successful placemaking, including the design of multi-functional public landscapes and vibrant urban waterfronts. The next approval is for a contract with Bergmann for architectural and engineering design services related to the Terminal B Capital Improvements Project. The generally good condition and proximity of Terminal B to the recently-opened Lakeside Bike Park makes an investment in this building a logical next step for Outer Harbor activation. To allow for increased access, use and sustainability at the Terminal B and surrounding site, ECHDC is planning for programmatic improvements, including: Expansion of ecological restoration area Extension of multi-use and single-track bike trails Exploration of ropes course development Sloped lawn amphitheater Flexed paved outdoor event/recreation space Extension of utilities to Terminal B Demolition of the exterior envelope of the existing Terminal B building to create a multi-use events space Design of a new structure within the exposed existing Terminal B structure to house concessions, restrooms and ECHDC storage area incorporating wind protection strategies, green roof, elevated waterfront overlook and catwalk Improvements along the quay wall to provide life safety for users of the area. Vehicular circulation and parking Site utilities to Terminal B from Fuhrmann Boulevard, lighting and signage Bergmann is a New York State full-service design firm with an office in Buffalo.  The final approval is for a contract with Trowbridge Wolf Michaels Landscape Architects LLP for architectural and engineering design services for the Buffalo Outer Harbor Access & Activation Civic Improvements Project, Phase 2 for the area between Wilkeson Pointe and Bell Slip.  The project will consist of several capital improvements and investments that allow for increased public access and activation of the Outer Harbor. The final improvements will include: environmental remediation, active and passive open space, habitat restoration, food and beverage opportunities, comfort stations, signage and wayfinding, and better water access around Bell Slip. The improvements will occur throughout acreage that remains largely vacant and underutilized.  TWMLA is a NYS-certified WBE.

  Empire State Development (ESD) today announced the authorization of more than $55.4 million in federal broadband support across two waves of funding from the FCC’s Connect America Fund (CAF).  This funding, which matches previously announced New NY Broadband Program Round III awards to eight providers, will support the deployment of fiber-based broadband access to over 23,000 unserved homes and businesses across all eight Upstate Regions. Today’s FCC authorization – approximately $16.2 million in federal funding addressing 8,088 locations – represents the second wave of CAF funding pursuant to the FCC’s landmark partnership with New York State, which was the result of efforts by Governor Cuomo, Empire State Development, and New York State’s Congressional representatives.  It follows the FCC’s July 15th authorization of over $39.2 million addressing 15,442 locations.  Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Howard Zemsky said, “This vital federal funding will bring the benefits of high-speed Internet to small businesses, schools and families throughout underserved areas of Upstate New York.” “Our partnership with New York is continuing to connect unserved rural areas of Upstate New York,” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. “Closing the digital divide is the FCC’s top priority, and I’m proud that this partnership will help bring the opportunities that high-speed Internet offers Upstate.” “The Broadband Program Office’s partnership with the FCC for the innovative joint CAF auction represents a first of its kind federal and state collaboration to expand broadband access.  Today’s announcement is an important milestone for the effort, and we thank the FCC for their partnership on this recent authorization, which will bring both federal and state funding to deploy broadband to over 23,000 previously announced locations across the State.” said Jeffrey Nordhaus, Empire State Development, Executive Vice President of Innovation and Broadband.
