The St. Lawrence River Valley Redevelopment Agency says it is moving closer to collecting information from the public on projects that may be assisted by the agency’s programs.
Until its own website is up and running, the agency says, potential applicants and visitors to www.slrvra.com will be temporarily redirected to a SLRVRA page on the St. Lawrence County Industrial Development Agency’s Local Development Corporation website. By visiting www.slrvra.com and clicking on the questionnaire link, potential applicants can provide information about themselves, their projects and the assistance which they are seeking.
The information submitted will be compiled in a database of potential projects, initiatives and applicants.
The SLRVRA is working to see how best to use its resources and will use this site and questionnaire to gain a better understanding of the range of projects that are on the drawing board in the county.
SLRVRA Chairman Robert McNeil described the web site and questionnaire as an early step toward putting the SLRVRA’s resources to work in the region.
“This is our way of reaching out and giving the public and potential partners a forum for getting their ideas and proposals to us in an orderly, efficient manner.” McNeil added, “Whether a project is just about ready to go, or in the very early stages, we want to know. We want to see what is out there and find ways to creatively and proactively address the barriers that may be preventing projects from moving forward.”
The St. Lawrence River Valley Redevelopment Agency will meet on Tuesday, Aug. 24 7 p.m. at the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority, Conference Room, One Bridge Plaza, Ogdensburg. The meeting is open to the public.
