ALBION – The first community meeting to gather public input on the Orleans County Canal Corridor Waterfront Revitalization Plan will be held 7 p.m. on Tuesday at Hoag Library, 134 S. Main St., Albion.

Those in attendance will be provided with information on the Canal Corridor Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan process followed by a hands-on, interactive public workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to identify potential transformative revitalization strategies that will provide long-term community and economic benefits for the communities along the Canal Corridor including the Town and Village of Albion, Village of Holley, and the Towns of Murray, Gaines, Ridgeway and Shelby.

This is an opportunity for residents and businesses in the community to provide feedback and help plan the future of the Canal Corridor. The Orleans Local Waterfront Advisory Committee would like to know what you love about the Canal Corridor – what draws you to it and what amenities would bring you to it more often.

The workshop is the first in a series of three public participation meetings that will be held over the next six months. Future public meeting will focus on a review of potential revitalization projects and the final recommendations for the Plan.
