Funding for Flood Resiliency Projects in the Town of Greece

By on November 19, 2019

On October 23, 2019, Governor Cuomo announced that $43 million will be set aside for Monroe County to assist in funding for identified shoreline community resiliency projects. The funds allotted to the Town of Greece will be used towards projects in several locations along the shoreline. The projects will encompass storm sewer upgrades, mitigation of surcharged sanitary sewers; roadway improvements to secure access for residents and emergency services; and stabilization of the shoreline to prevent erosion and protect public access at community parks. Furthermore, $15 million will be allocated towards a regional dredging plan which will help to maintain safe access to Lake Ontario for the boating community. The Town of Greece will be using these funds to create a safer and more secure environment for our shoreline community.

A link has been provided for shoreline residents to information about the New York State Resiliency and Economic Development Initiative (REDI) projects selected for funding for the Town of Greece. Please note that this is a preliminary engineering plan. We are expecting to receive additional specific project plans that will be announced in the near future.
