Valerie Knoblauch, President - Finger Lakes Visitors Connection
“The proposal, as I've reviewed it aligns with many elements of our strategic plan- and if carried out as proposed, should create a great amenity for our future visitors and residents."
The undersigned supports the adaptive reuse of Trinity Episcopal Church into an inn, restaurant and event space while still allowing the congregation of Trinity Episcopal Church to worship in their historic sanctuary.
The saving of Trinity Episcopal Church will ensure the preservation of this 175 year historic structure which has been part of the fabric of the City of Geneva. The adaptive reuse and saving of the sanctuary structure maintains the character of the South Main Street Historical District.
In addition, the 20 full-time and ten part-time jobs will be an employment plus for residents of the Geneva community. The unique association with Finger Lakes Community College will result in scholarships and internships for students at FLCC. The economic impact of this adaptive reuse project will benefit all residents of Geneva.
Most importantly, the project will allow the congregation of Trinity Episcopal Church to continue to worship and participate in their ministries which they have done for over 200 years!
