Looking to the Future After Huntley’s Closing

Tonawanda Tomorrow Draft Plan Unveiled!!

Over the past nine months, the Town and its community partners have been working to create a plan for growing Tonawanda’s economy. Driven by the community, this draft plan was shaped by the voices of nearly 1,000 Tonawanda residents, business owners, and community stakeholders.

This draft plan is now available online – is still in draft form, and needs your input to be complete.

Between now and May 31st, the Tonawanda community is encouraged to read the plan and offer comments.

The Tonawanda Tomorrow project launched out of our just transition campaign to grow the town’s economy after the impact of the Huntley Power Plant closing. The NRG Energy’s Huntley plant in Tonawanda, N.Y., closed last summer because the company couldn’t make a profit off selling power into the market.

Between now and May 31st, the Tonawanda community is encouraged to read the plan and offer comments about what you liked, what you don’t like, and how you would like to see it improved.
