Three Rivers successful in first round of America’s Best Communities competition

Three Rivers, along with Fabius, Park and Lockport townships were told Wednesday that they were successful in the first round of the “America’s Best Communities” competition, a $10 million initiative to stimulate economic revitalization in small towns and cities.
Sponsored by Frontier Communications, DISH Network, The Weather Channel and CoBank, Three Rivers, and Fabius, Park and Lockport townships, as a collaborative effort, have advanced into the quarterfinals of the competition, following selection from a pool of about 140 applicant teams by an independent group of expert judges.
The team will be awarded $50,000 to develop a comprehensive strategy to accelerate the revival of the local economy and improve quality of life.
The competition’s 50 quarterfinalist communities now have six months to complete their revitalization plans for the chance to win up to an additional $3 million to bring their ideas to life.
