LIVINGSTON COUNTY — The quest for Livingston County to win the America’s Best Community continues as they have now been awarded $50,000 and will advance to the next round.
Louise Wadsworth from the Livingston County Development Agency notified Geneseo Merchants Association members that Livingston County was 1 of 50 communities that have advanced to the quarter final round of America’s Best Community Competition, winning $50,000 as a result.
“Out of the 50 quarter finalists, we are only 1 of 5 county applicants who advanced to this round,” said Wadsworth. “The $50,000 now goes towards making a development and revitalization plan and strategy.”
The Community Revitalization Plan (CRP) will be used to identify implementable community development strategies, projects, and programs. The plan is due November 6, so the earlier that community members and business owners can fill out their online survey, that will be used to build an effective revitalization plan.
The program is sponsored by Frontier Communications, Dish Network Inc. CoBank and The Weather Channel.
