Historic Huguenot Street has announced that it has been selected for an award of $37,000 from New York State through the Consolidated Funding Application process, or CFA. Funding provided through Empire State Development (ESD) will be used for the creation of a master site plan for the museum.
After seven successful rounds, the 2018 CFA made over $750 million in economic development resources available from more than 30 programs across 10 state agencies. The agency’s programs are designed to provide resources for projects focused on community development and job creation, tourism, waterfront revitalization, energy and environmental improvements, sustainability, and low-cost financing.
Specifically, goals for the master site plan include improving visitor experience and access, increasing the site’s appeal as an international destination, increasing staff interaction and efficiency, long-term financial sustainability, and improving environmental sustainability.
The planning process is expected to consider the history and evolution of the site, the current landscape and the needs and plans of our neighbors and visitors, public access to collections, visitor services, site access; parking, programming and research spaces, vehicular and pedestrian traffic patterns, topography, collections storage, environmental controls, technology and communications, and outdoor spaces for events, programs, and public use.
