NYS is investing $200 million in up to 20 downtown neighborhoods across the State. The Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) is investing $200 million in 20 downtowns statewide. Its goal is to boost local economies by transforming vibrant neighborhoods where the next generation of New Yorkers will want to live, work and raise a family. The Capital Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs) will choose one or two downtowns that are ripe for revitalization. We want to hear from you about your passion for our Town and ready-to-go projects including public infrastructure that will help us reach our full potential. Opportunities that attract residents, workers and visitors and address needed public improvements like flood mitigation and municipal services may be  identified in our proposal, which is due on September 15, 2021. You can read more about the program at 



To be competitive we MUST document community interest and support. We are building on the 2016 Copake Downtown Design and Development Plan and the 2021 Town of Copake Waterfront and Community Revitalization Plan but we need your input focusing on downtown Copake. Help us tell Copake’s great story.
