ROME -- Organizers with the City of Rome held a public briefing Thursday on the 'Downtown Revitalization Initiative'.
Rome was selected in September to receive $10 million in state funding, in efforts to improve the city's economy.
Project consultants met with the community to discuss their plans for downtown Rome.
There are 12 projects planned for Rome's downtown initiative. Those projects will be submitted to New York State for approval and funding.
The $10 million will be split between the different downtown projects.
One goal for investing money into downtown businesses is to generate more money for Rome's economy.
Rome's downtown initiative is a part of a $100 million statewide goal to invest in local communities.
