The Arts Center of the Capital Region is organizing a "(Re)imagining Troy Project." And it's looking for submissions. Blurbage:

In an attempt to engage the Capital District in productive and imaginative ways, the Arts Center of the Capital Region will sponsor the (Re)imagining Troy Project, an exhibit that will explore, in creative and practical ways, how Troy can become an even more livable city. Submissions, focused on ideas big and small, are open to all residents of the region and can be expressed in words, images, models, sketches, videos or any other medium that can convey a good idea. A panel of local stakeholders will choose the twenty-five best ideas submitted.

The link above includes details about to apply, and how how ideas will be judged. The deadline is February 28.

Yep, the Arts Center advertises on AOA.

Tourism on the Hudson!

Downtown Shoppes facing Historic Hudson~~Cruise Ships in awe of Troy Architecture...it now looks like abandoned downtown Detroit

Canals!! Venice has canals~~Holland has canals Troy has a canal~~clean it up~~community vols. Bette Midler did it in NYC Build it and they will come Bette says dumpy eyesore areas were transformed into parks. The impossible became possible.

Drugs~~Are a cancer among the welfare and homeless communities. It is not a health issue~~it is a choice and a crime. Not to be tolerated...it is a cancer to the town. Cops need to try much much harder.

RPI~~Adopt Local everything. Look at Cornell and Ithica~~

Although it's outside the Capital Region and so naturally isn't included in the AOA listing, as ever I remind everyone that the Dutchess County Fair is the biggest of all NYS county fairs and worth the trip to Rhinebeck.
