Cortland Downtown Partnership Executive Director Lloyd Purdy will be traveling to Washington D.C. this week to accept a Preserve America Grant from the National Park Service and the First Lady Laura Bush.

Wednesday July 12 and Thursday July 13, Mr. Purdy will be meeting with New York State Delegates to talk about downtown Cortland and Thursday morning he will be accepting a Preserve America grant on behalf of the City of Cortland.

“Historic Downtown Cortland has a lot of potential,” said Mr. Purdy. “This grant will help us develop the potential of arts and culture in historic downtown Cortland.”
