REDI Commission Process
Meeting of Community Leaders
Five REDI regions, comprised of eight counties (Niagara and Orleans, Monroe, Wayne, Cayuga and Oswego, and Jefferson and St. Lawrence) were established to identify local priorities, at-risk infrastructure and other assets, and public safety concerns.
To identify projects, in Summer 2019, REDI organized 25 stakeholder and community meetings and workshops, convened 15 planning committee meetings, and directed NYS agency and engineering experts to evaluate 500+ projects proposed by communities.
Regional Projects Announced
In October 2019, Governor Cuomo announced the regional projects selected by the REDI Commission that will help sustainably rebuild and enhance economic development in communities along the Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River shorelines.
Projects Selected by the REDI Commission
The eight-county $15 million Regional Dredging effort will sustainably maintain safe navigation channels to harbors and bays along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River.
