The Post Journal, Jamestown NY - Celoron to Apply for Waterfront Project Funding, by Dennis Phillips - “'If at first you don't succeed, try, try again,' is a famous quote and the attitude Celoron officials have in attempting to gain funding for a waterfront revitalization project. Last year, the Village applied and was 'very close' to receiving funds; so, a resolution was passed last evening to apply once again. The economic development strategy was first implemented in 2011; creating 10 regional councils of area leaders to determine which projects were most vital for economic success. These councils then applied for state funding for grant money and tax credits. $738 million was made available in 2012. For 2013, the fund is up to $760 million; and the Village has decided to re-apply, wanting to construct a boardwalk in Lucille Ball Memorial Park and for other park improvements. This waterfront revitalization plan stems from $36,000 the Village received in 2010, and continues. The plan is for the boardwalk to go all the way 'around' the LBMP,” published this date in 2013.
