MEDINA – The Local Planning Committee that is identifying $4.5 million in projects to submit to the state to bolster downtown Medina will have a workshop on Sept. 13 to get input from the public.

The committee will have an interactive workshop at 6 p.m. in the school district board room at 1 Mustang Drive. The committee wants to see how community members would spend the $4.5 million.

Medina was awarded the grant in February through the NY Forward program. Medina has a committee to finalize projects that will go to the state for final approval. The funding should become available next year after the projects get a final OK from the state.

The workshop on Sept. 13 will include a short review of the projects being considered for funding. Attendees will then participate in an interactive exercise where they will spend $4.5 million on the projects they believe would have the most impact in downtown Medina.
