Also on Wednesday, the state’s project assessment team heard proposals from applicants in this year’s round, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, Lewis said.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame Digitization Project would allow users to access the entire Hall of Fame collection online, with images and curatorial comments, a September release from the council said. Other area projects included in review for possible funding in the next round include applications by:
• Foothills Performing Arts Center and Civic Center in Oneonta, to buy acoustic treatments, including a specially designed acoustic shell for the main stage, low-noise carpeting and stage curtains.
• Brewery Ommegang, the Cooperstown-area brewery producer of Belgian-style beer, seeks support for the fourth year of a six-year, $17 million expansion project and construction of a water treatment facility.
• Custom Electronics Inc. in Oneonta, to establish a new business in power distribution and energy storage.
