The Ti-Alliance aims to create a new prosperity in Ticonderoga by leveraging its power of place to reverse the current downward spiral facing our area. The Ti-Alliance is combining four critical directives into a single, unified vision. Under this new prosperity, The Ti-Alliance will concentrate on four areas which will work as a cohesive structure for improvement and innovation:
(1) Become a center for Arts, Entertainment, and Tourism by utilizing the resources that currently exist. We have a growing initiative for the cultural arts, outstanding historical attractions, and incredible natural beauty that is second to none.
(2) Create partnerships which involve a higher level of interaction between the Town, Fort Ticonderoga, and North Country Community College to name a few, as well as the organizations that are currently in place to help improve the appearance and well-being of the town.
(3) Encourage business growth which includes attracting new business development, supporting existing businesses, and rehabilitating/creating new uses for existing historic buildings.
(4) Improve quality of life in Ticonderoga. Improve transportation and wellness, emphasize our great educational attributes, and create safe and affordable housing in the community. Building a strong social foundation will promote job creation and higher quality employment opportunities.
Any of these might happen alone but this vision of a new prosperity can only be achieved with partners continuing to build on each directive while promoting all parts to interact in a unified way. Only then will Ticonderoga achieve true and long lasting prosperity!
