“The green stormwater retention project right here on Spring Street will help the village preserve the pristine beauty of Glen Falls and allow the village to decrease the amount of stormwater that goes into the sewage treatment plant, all the while improving the quality of life, both for residents and those who come here to visit and shop”
Senator Charles Schumer
As the design moved forward a libaility was identified — stormwater run-off, would be its strongest opportunity for redevelopment. Through New York State (NYS) Environmental Facilities Corporation and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, green infrastructure became the driving force behind bringing the community’s vision of “a pedestrianfocused Village Center at the historic Mill” to life. Joy Kuebler’s Try It On activites led to greater community support and interest for the project. It received nearly $3 million in funding to capture and filter stormwater run-off through sidewalk planters and permeable pavers installed on the new pedestrian plaza at the Mill It also later received an additional $250,000 to support the finishing touches on this newly imagined place. In addition, the design included the elimination of erosion and sedimentation through the innovative
use of a living wall system to both stabilize the escarpment and filter stormwater.
