Capital Region Strategic Plan

The Capital Region REDC

Saratogo Race Course is one of the Capital District's popular attractions.

The Capital Region is an attractive place to do business. Among its assets are: a strategic location with proximity to all major markets in the northeast; an extraordinary quality of life with a mix of suburban rural communities and medium sized cities, including the Capital City; a highly skilled workforce and the many world renowned academic and research institutions. These intellectual centers provide unparalleled economic development potential as well as opportunities for companies to grow and expand, especially in high tech and knowledge based industries.


Project Spotlight

Olana State Historic Site

Olana State Historic Site

Olana State Historic Site, a significant tourism destination in the upper Hudson Valley, saw nearly 150,000 visitors last year —a 12 percent increase from the previous year. Visitation is expected to grow thanks in large part to funding awarded through the Capital Region Economic Development Council in support of several critical historic preservation projects.

With the assistance of more than $600,000 awarded in Rounds 1 and 2, The Olana Partnership (TOP) has begun to implement two major aspects of Olana’s Landscape Restoration Plan, the restoration of the historic North Meadow and the restoration of the historic landscape in the area surrounding the main house at Olana. Work on the North Meadow is virtually complete and has created 6 jobs. Work on the area surrounding the house is beginning this year.

“To have received a third grant in three years symbolizes for us an ever greater recognition on the part of the REDCs that tourism plays a major role in economic development in New York State,” stated Sara Griffen, President of The Olana Partnership. “We are proud to be a national and international destination as well as an important part of the community.” (Read more)
