Draft Vision Statement
The Village of Medina envisions itself becoming a premier historic, recreational, and scenic community along the Erie Canal. Our aspiration is to be a destination for visitors of all ages who seek culture, bucolic landscapes, a bustling Main Street, shopping districts, and all the best that Upstate New York has to offer. We see a vibrant future for Downtown Medina, abound with healthy businesses, cultural and economic diversity, and a strong community of families. We believe that – by capitalizing on the synergies between our downtown and the waterfront, the Village’s deep-rooted historical significance and architectural assets, recent and ongoing economic developments, and our scenic and strategic location – that Medina is poised to restore and advance its legacy as a key cultural anchor and economic hub along the Erie Canal.
