Endicott residents and business owners will have an opportunity to submit ideas for a village revitalization initiative.

A planning committee is seeking proposals for privately-sponsored projects that may be considered for funding.

The village last December received word that it had been awarded $10 million from the state as part of the downtown revitalization initiative program.

The Local Planning Committee will review proposals for "potentially transformative projects on privately owned sites that provide economic and community benefits."

The first public workshop is to be held as a virtual meeting on March 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. Information about the session may be obtained at endicottdri.com.

According to a news release from the village, submissions for possible funding could includ capital or construction projects, business expansion or creation as well as renovation of existing buildings on private sites.

The planning committee is encouraging new ideas, along with proposals for "established project concepts."

Virtual office hours will be held during the week of March 14. The deadline to submit questions is March 18 and the deadline to submit project proposals is April 1.
