Big Things are Coming Soon
The City of Norwich has been selected as the $10 million recipient of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) by the Southern Tier Regional Economic Development Council.
The DRI will fund multiple projects that leverage Norwich's assets, capitalize on existing opportunities, and foster a vibrant and sustainable downtown environment that works for everyone – residents, businesses, and visitors included.

Strategic Investment Plan
Community members, the Local Planning Committee (LPC), and a team of planners will identify housing, economic development, transportation, and public realm projects that align with the community’s vision for downtown.
How the DRI Works
The State will award DRI funds to select projects recommended in the Strategic Investment Plan that advance the community's vision for downtown and that leverage and expand upon the State's investment.
Projects selected for DRI funding will be assigned to the appropriate State agency or authority to begin implementation in cooperation with the project sponsor.
