Do you have an idea for $500 million

capital 2020 logoCAPITAL 20.20 -- the working group that's developing the Capital Region's pitch for one of the three $500 million awards in the state's Upstate Revitalization Initiative -- has a series of "town hall" events lined up this week for gathering public input.

Project blurbage:

The purpose of each region's Revitalization Plan will be to 1) provide a well-researched and credible argument that the region is ready for revitalization; and 2) to describe the transformation that will happen in the region if granted those funds.

The project is also gathering input via a survey.
