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.
LGV and its network of partners have been chosen as just one of 47 efforts nationwide to participate in the USDA’s new Rural Economic Development Innovation (REDI) initiative. The technical assistance will go towards creating a regional plan for building an outdoor recreation economy in the Genesee Valley Region.
In 2019 LGV is partnering with the Culinary Tourism Alliance, one of the world's leading experts in food tourism development, to explore how we can combine our regional strengths in agriculture with travel and hospitality to drive new market opportunities in our region.
where we work
Letchworth Gateway Villages is implemented with local partners in the communities of Perry, Mount Morris and Geneseo, NY.
