Thank you!!

Thank you for joining us for the final presentation of the Envision Sidney's Resilient Riverfront Strategy on March 24, 2022. We heard many positive comments about the conceptual designs that have emerged from your input over the past months. We look forward to gathering additional input on how you feel the Village should prioritize the different riverfront projects. Take the latest Resilient Sidney survey on priority projects here.

community workshop.

Thanks to everyone who turned out for the second community workshop on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 to contribute ideas for resilient recreational and open space uses along Sidney's riverfront.  These ideas, along with extensive community input from the first workshop in November, January focus groups and Resilient Sidney surveys, will continue to shape the design for publicly owned lands along Sidney's Susquehanna River. We look forward to meeting with you again around late February to review the Envision Sidney's Resilient Riverfront Strategy, including conceptual designs that have emerged from all of your input.
