We fuel economic growth through regional cooperation.


Letchworth Gateway Villages is a municipal collaboration designed to catalyze economic growth and new tourism-related market opportunities for the communities that serve as “gateways” to Letchworth State Park.

Through network-building, technical assistance, and research, LGV serves as a vehicle to build the regional cooperation critical for realizing our long-term economic potential.
