Be Heard

You are how change happens.

Gathering public input is essential to make lasting universal change. We need your input on the DRI projects to make sure that we're properly addressing your wants and needs and those of the greater community. Frankly, Gloversville should be redeveloped by those that know it best: you.

Opportunities for you to get involved will be posted on this page, which will be public surveys, information sessions, and public forums for you to post ideas and general comments. The feedback we receive from those outlets will not only help us shape the vision of Gloversville, but form feasible and sustainable objectives to achieve that vision.


With the inability to hold in-person meetings at this time, we will be holding a virtual forum space for you to review our project sheets, give us some feedback, and vote on your favorites. The public survey is now live and is waiting for your input.

This discussion will take place on the City of Gloversville's Facebook page, and public comments are welcomed. 

In preparation of the public forum scheduled for June 5th (see below), a preliminary project list will be released for community review on June 1st. This will allow folks seeking to participate in the forum to digest each project and prepare questions and dialogue to bring to the forum.

On June 5th, 2020 at 10:00 A.M., Lisa Nagle, Principal of Elan PD, joins Mayor DeSantis and Hannahs once again on the City's Facebook page to formally present the preliminary DRI project list. The public is welcome to provide feedback in the comments section throughout the meeting, as well as for one week following the live broadcast. Along with the week-long access to the forum, the public is encouraged to participate in the interactive online project survey, which will be release immediately following the conclusion of the forum. Participants will be able to view each project at length, show levels of support on a scaled format, and provide suggestions in corresponding dialogue boxes.
