The Governor's Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR) is allotting almost $15 million in federal funds to support the planning and implementation of community-developed recovery and resiliency projects which will put us way above the bar with improved communications, infrastructure and beautification throughout the Village of Freeport. Over the course of the scoping and planning phases, Freeporters are offered a chance to learn and comment on the direction of these projects by attending community events, such as information sessions or participating in engagement events, to help further shape the project and program preliminary designs.
On Wednesday, November 01, 2017 at the Freeport Recreation Center, several stakeholders and residents attended a presentation of our anticipated projects which Freeport Electric, Freeport’s Department of Public Works, and outside engineering/designs firms will oversee. The projects include outage management communications and infrastructure/beautification upgrades at the Freeport Memorial Library and Freeport’s Village Hall. The backbone of the GOSR Program is a community-driven resilience planning process that is unprecedented in scope and financial commitment.
