Cornwall gets $250,000 to revitalize downtown
Downtown Cornwall is getting a much-needed facelift to revitalize its Main Street and help out small businesses.
The town is getting nearly $250,000 from the state to fix a pedestrian bridge that’s been closed for more than a decade, add crosswalks, benches and landscape the traffic circle downtown.
Sen. James Skoufis help secured the funds and said the money comes at a time when small towns and businesses need it most. “You have tons of people coming out of New York City these past number of months and looking to relocate Hudson Valley. And we need to make sure our communities are appealing, or attractive to the small businesses who want to come here into the residence who want to move to our area.”
News 12 is told construction will start right away and finish by next summer.
