(Re)Imagining Troy | Winners Announced!June 30, 2013 — 12:00 PM
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.
The winners of the (Re)Imagining Troy project have been chosen. Out of the 75 ideas submitted, the following were viewed as being the most impactful, creative, and practical. Some are small and simple – others are big and audacious. We are grateful to all those who submitted ideas and got excited by the project. It is now our hope that some of these ideas can be actualized.
The winning ideas can be categorized into the following groups: those that enhance the natural resources of Troy, improve the physical infrastructure of the city, bring people to the city, aid transportation, provide information to visitors, and those that are in their own category. These are simply brief descriptions of the winning ideas – more details – and a chance to react to the ideas – will follow soon.
