The Coolest Small Town wins Round 3!

The Village of Owego is a charming riverfront community that serves as a gateway to acclaimed institutions, attractions, and employers of the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier. The village's compact and walkable downtown contains year-round amenities that contribute to a high quality of life, including parks, cultural attractions, a historic commercial district, and walking paths that connect to the river. The Village will leverage DRI funds to build upon recent public and private investment in downtown buildings and infrastructure, growing employment opportunities and a strong tourist economy. The DRI effort will boost the local economy by attracting new and strengthening existing business and skilled labor, enhancing cultural and recreational amenities, and addressing the demand for affordable and resilient housing for residents of all ages and income levels.
