As you may have read or heard in the news Onondaga County with the support of New York State has allocated funds to support the restoration of targeted areas of the Village of Solvay. One program funds mixed-use development, (projects involving both commercial and residential space). Mixed-use projects entail the acquisition and/or construction of mixed-use development(s) on property located in the heart of Solvay’s commercial district.
Presently, the target area is the Village’s main commercial area, primarily Milton Avenue. Restoration will focus on projects with the ability to contribute to the revitalization of the Village’s central commercial district. Projects funded will transform underutilized, dilapidated or vacant lands into vital developments. These developments will host mixed-use spaces. Eligible property will consist of no more than 5 acres of land in total and each project will be funded from the grant up to but not more than one third (33.3) of the total cost of the project.
At 5:30 PM on July 11th 2016 at the Solvay Fire Department representatives from Onondaga County and the Village of Solvay will hold an informational meeting to discuss the invitation to developers to propose Mixed Use Development Project(s) in the Village of Solvay’s commercial district. Onondaga County’s Department of Community Development has some funds available to support a selected project or projects as appropriate.
This solicitation is part of the larger Onondaga County Revitalization Project announced previously. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. We look forward to seeing you at this meeting to review the program in more detail. Also applications will be available at this meeting which you can complete and submit for participation in the program.
