What is it?

The Earlville for Earlville project will give our community a way for us to define and describe our needs and goals, and to use those needs and goals to develop an action plan. We will do this by asking ourselves questions in a variety of ways: through surveys, interviews, focus groups and public meetings. These questions will help us determine what services currently exist in our community, and what are our challenges and what we want to do for the future of Earlville.  The action plan that results will help us learn what our priority projects are, and who can help us work towards making those projects happen.

Who is it?

The Earlville for Earlville project is led by a partnership that includes the Village of Earlville, the Town of Hamilton, Town of Sherburne, the Earlville Free Library, the Partnership for Community Development, the Upstate Institute at Colgate University, and others. Most importantly, the project will include anyone who lives or has lived in Earlville; property owners, businesses, and even includes our youth. The project will provide several ways for any residents who want to share their voice to be included in the conversation.
