The Village of Waterloo is Requesting Input on 2023 Downtown Revitalization Initiative application at Community Center
Waterloo, NY, September 7, 2023 – The Village of Waterloo will be hosting a public hearing at the Waterloo Community Center on Wednesday, September 13, 2023, at 6:00PM to gather input on the Village’s application for up to $10 million in Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI) or up to $4.5 million in New York Forward funding from the State of New York. Individuals who participate will be given an opportunity to comment on potential transformative projects included in the application(s).
Potential projects include village building improvements, streetscape upgrades, year-round event spaces, and canalside enhancements.
Additional information on the State’s DRI program will be provided at the meeting.
The purpose of this report is to provide preliminary information pertinent to the planning, design, and construction of a new sewer extension, for the Village of Waterloo, specifically the portion of the Village designated as the “island area”. The proposed sewer extension includes a portion along Washington Street, and connection to the Village’s existing sewer system on East Water Street. The overall intent is to provide sewer service to this area of the Village such that the buildings can be revamped and the area can be redeveloped. Refer to Appendix A for a site plan of the proposed project.
This report provides alternatives and recommendations for a new sewer system that will serve the properties in this area and convey sanitary flows to the Village’s existing system. The report focuses on project feasibility, appropriate design concepts, pertinent permitting, estimated costs, and project implementation. The Village was awarded a grant allocation through the 2020 FY Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program to complete this report.

The Henry C. Welles award honors those individuals who
“embody the character and commitment of the founder of Memorial Day toward the betterment of our community.”
The Waterloo Library & Historical Society is proud to announce the 2023 Henry C. Welles Awardees are Dave and Darlene Duprey. The annual event will serve to kick off the Celebrate Commemorate weekend starting at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 26 in WLHS’s newly renovated Fatzinger Hall.
Dave and Darlene are lifelong stewards of the Waterloo community. They started their business, Duprey Video productions, in 1989. They have been married for 47 years, raising their 3 children in Waterloo and now have 3 grandchildren.
Together the Duprey’s have produced valuable footage for events all over the community and started their YouTube channel in 2019 WaterlooNYtube to share their decades of documentation. They have worked tirelessly on community projects including the downtown interactive map, walking tours, the historical mural, and the healing fields. They are active members of the Real Christmas Committee, and the Board of Directors of the Queen of Peace Apostolate, the St. Frances and St Clare Roman Catholic Parish pastoral Council and more. Dave and Darlene are founders of Waterloo in Bloom which provides plants and flowers for downtown including Vern’s Way, the Memory Bank, and Dempsey Park beautifying downtown.
As if doing all of that wasn’t enough individually the Duprey’s continued their commitment to service. Darlene served on the St. Mary’s Parent club for 17 years, chaired the St. Mary School yearbook committee for 8 years and co-chaired the St Mary’s Christmas Bazaar.
Dave was a village trustee for 20 years also serving as Deputy Mayor. While serving Waterloo he focused on Oak Island and its connection to downtown, improving the Village website as well as the American Civil War Memorial and the Cay-Seneca Canal Trail. He was also the past President of the Waterloo Business and Professional Association. Dave was imperative to the founding of the Celebrate Commemorate Memorial Day events in 2000 and has been a Co-chair for the past 20 years. Dave truly understands the true meaning of Memorial Day. During his long served time on the committee he ensured a constant connection to Veteran Organizations. During event planning as to always honor those who lost their lives while serving.
Like many other previous award winners the Duprey’s contributed to our community without an expectation of recognition. When they were told that they were chosen for this award they were shocked. They are proud to be listed among those they have looked up to for many years. Dave said he “felt extremely honored and lucky to have his wife by his side to accept this award as she supported him along the way.” Darlene has “enjoyed playing a part in promoting our wonderful community and preserving its history”

This year’s honor float in the Freedom Parade pays tribute to our men and women who have served. Come watch the Romulus Girl Scouts come together to carry a large flag down main street in honor of all military men and women who have served and are still serving. We welcome anyone who would like to join us in this great opportunity.
A float by Girl Ccout Troop 60562 will honor all veterans. Any Vet who would like to ride on the float is invited to call Sarah Smolinski at 315-745-9928 or Nicole Hunsberger at 315-719-5247.
Veterans will follow in cars, motorcycles and especially buses from the VA hospital in Canandaigua. Those who want to drive their own cars must have at least three people in the vehicle. Following the parade, vets will be hosted at a chicken barbecue lunch at the VFW. Please RSVP to Karen Lewis at 315-651-9513 to allow the VFW to plan for enough food.
Groups that have been in the parade before, know what fun it can be. Once again, there will be divisions for military and officials; youth organizations, schools and families; churches, senior citizens and organizations; and vehicles. The Civil War and American Revolutionary War re-enactors will have a “parade within a parade.” Watch for special “dignitaries” in this year’s parade including US President Abe Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. The very popular Hit Men Brass Band will join Downbeat Percussion, Mighty St. Joe’s Alumni Drum & Bugle Corps, the Waterloo Central School Band and the Finger Lakes Pipes & Drums in the lineup this year.
Bring your chair and wave a flag to honor our vets and community stars!
