The city of Troy has been selected to receive $100,000 in federal funding to upgrade its waterfront.

The money will be used to help identify a vision and guide development for the city’s eight-mile Hudson River waterfront. It will also align with the recently completed zoning update and help address the city’s smart growth, resiliency and sustainability goals, the city said.

“As climate change continues to pose new and evolving challenges for local governments, Troy is working with our partners in state government to spur economic growth and the equitable development of housing along our waterfront while improving our infrastructure and community resilience,” said Troy Mayor Patrick Madden in a statement.
