PALMYRA, NEW YORK ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Palmyra NY Home / About Palmyra NY / Economic Development
The governments of Palmyra, Town and Village, share a mission: the development and maintenance of a community in which families can live in comfort and safety and in which businesses can prosper. To that end, both the Palmyra Town Board and the Palmyra Village Board focus on economic development as a means to achieve that goal.
The Village of Palmyra, 1.3 square miles in size and with a population just over 3,500 residents, has minimal area for physical growth. As a result, the economic focus is on the support of and promotion of existing businesses and the acquisition of new. The village has become a tourism destination, drawing not only regional visitors, but also those from a distance via tour busses, the Erie Canal and the Canal Trail. Visitors are drawn to Palmyra by the historic sites of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). Others come to experience the village’s architecture which includes more than 200 properties – commercial, residential, government and sacred - on the National Register of Historic Places and the nationally recognized museums of Historic Palmyra
The Village offers support to new and expanding businesses in a variety of ways including a revolving loan fund and matching grants for façade work and signage. Information on these opportunities is available through the Village Office, (315) 597-4849, firstname.lastname@example.org
the Port of Palmyra Marina include free wi-fi (also in the central
business block), a newly opened restroom/ shower complex and a
surveillance system, all of which entice visitors to visit and
linger in Palmyra and our residents to enjoy these amenities. The
presence of a full time local Police Department and a surveillance
system at the marina add to the sense of security. Jointly, the town
and village promote Palmyra through memberships in Greater Rochester
Visitors, Finger Lakes Alliance and Canal New York Marketing and
Business Alliance and online.
