Silver Lake Trail

In 2014, with support from the Town of Perry and Town of Castile, the Village of Perry applied for a UPWP grant to fund for planning work on the Silver Lake Trail. In March 2015, that application was approved. A feasibility study was completed by a team of consultants from Barton & Logudice, in consultation with an advisory committee that included representatives from multiple communities and interested stakeholder groups.


Letchworth Gateway Villages

Letchworth Gateway Villages is a collaborative initiative with neighboring communities. It was established in 2016 with the receipt of a USDA Rural Development grant by the villages of Perry,  Mt. Morris and Geneseo and other investors, including Livingston County Economic Development for the purposes of exploring new ways to work together to catalyze opportunities between the villages, their Main Streets, and Letchworth State Park. The Village of Perry is the administrative lead for the initiative.

The Advisory Group for Letchworth Gateway Villages includes a representative from volunteer groups with an interest in the health of Main Street in each community (the Perry Main Street Association, Partners for Progress in Mt. Morris, and Promote Geneseo) as well as Mayor Hauser from the Village of Perry and Downtown Partnership Program Leader Louise Wadsworth from Livingston County Economic Development. 


Building Improvement Loan Program

The Building Improvement Loan ("BIL") program aims to assist property owners improve the appearance and physical structure of their properties. It is the Village's intent to match the dollar amount that applicants contribute to an approved project. The Village's matching portion is provided by a dedicated loan fund that was established through a 1980s Federal grant program. Local tax funds are not used in funding this program. 

There are two project classifications for the BIL program. First is the Fascade Renovation. Projects in this classification focus on the structural repair and restoration of the street-facing exteriors of commercial, industrial, and landmark buildings in the Village. These projects can be approved in amounts up to $5,000. The second is the Adaptive Reuse. These projects focus on structural update and repurposing of an existing building or site. Projects under this definition can receive up to $25,000.

The Village invites property owners to utilize this program to improve our community. The BIL policy and application forms are attached for review and consideration.
