Pro-Brockport’s ad in this week’s Suburban News in support of the 60 Clinton Street Tax Exemption puts more pressure on the Sweden Town Council, which has been dragging its feet on the matter.
For those of you who haven’t seen it, here is the text of the ad.
Constructed in 1850 and is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places
Here is why you, the greater Brockport area residents, should let the Sweden Town Board know that you support and want them to approve the NYS Real Property Law 421-m for the 60 Clinton Street Rehabilitation Project:
- Immediate addition to tax rolls / improve tax base
- Return vitality and uplift derelict canal front neighborhood
- Create safer downtown – higher quality of living
- Volunteers have invested time, money, & heart in this project
- Tourism $$$’s – greater presence on Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor
- Repurpose and restore a State and National Register site
- Benefit local businesses
- Increase real estate values and investments
- “Cost Neutral” to local and state government, so it’s a win-win!
