BATAVIA — The first open house to introduce the public to the City Centre Revitalization Strategy project will take place in the City Centre concourse at 6 p.m. on


Those who attend will get information on the project and have an opportunity to meet the project team, and review project-related information. The strategy will focus on strategic improvements that can made to the concourse and entries of the City Centre structure as well as potential development concepts for underused areas of the parking lots around City Centre.

Potential improvements to the City Centre concourse would be partially funded with the $1 million award provided by the Downtown Revitalization Initiative program. Initial concepts for new entryways and upgrades to improve the appearance of the concourse will be available for review at the Open House.

In addition to providing information on potential concourse improvements, the Open House will also provide early conceptual plans for developing underused portions of the parking lots along Bank Street. Concepts for streetscape upgrades for Bank Street will also be available at the meeting.

Protocols related to the COVID-19 pandemic will be in place for the meeting.
