$10 Million Downtown Revitalization Initiative Award for Lowville

On January 23, 2024, the Village of Lowville was awarded $10,000,000 through the NYS DRI program. Lowville’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative application — titled “RESTORE REDISCOVER CONNECT” — demonstrated the Village’s readiness and capacity to transform its downtown into a more vibrant neighborhood through private and public sector project opportunities that will achieve its vision for the downtown. As the “urban heart” of Lewis County, the Village seeks to preserve and enhance its small-town, rural charm, while diversifying and expanding its economic base in ways consistent with its unique character. This award was the culmination of partnerships between the Village of Lowville, Lewis County Planning & Community Development Department, and Naturally Lewis.
