Connecting Downtown to the River:
A Vision for Sustainability and Growth in Wellsville, New York
The Alfred State College Architecture and Design Department’s senior Appalachian Teaching Project studio worked with the Village of Wellsville, located in New York’s Southern Tier, as the subject for the semester’s community visualization study. Working individually and in small groups, students researched and documented the subject area and completed a neighborhood development analysis, which included a visual survey of the defined neighborhood pattern and design of the existing community.
The overall goal through student engagement in the community is to develop an inclusive community visualization study that includes a series of design interventions based on the village’s updated comprehensive plan. The study included a series of before and after thematic images intended to help stakeholders envision possibilities for future development. Implementation will be possible through grant funding that will require the community to have a clearly defined vision to supplement the new comprehensive plan.
