Southern Tier towns competing for HGTV makeover

first_img(WBNG) — Several Upstate New York towns are vying for a shot at a makeover in a new television series, and some of them are right in your backyard. HGTV’s new upcoming series, Home Town Takeover, is looking for the next small town with a population under 40,000 to be their next project. “We have a very tight-knit community. I think that’s the biggest thing and I think it also wanted a town with architecture, and we have a lot of historic architecture around here,” said Tiffany. Meanwhile, Deposit says it’s looking to fix up a lot of the older homes and State Theatre while preserving the history. The creator of the video submitted for the application, Julie Tiffany, says Deposit’s main attraction is the Delaware River. “We really need the most change on our Washington Avenue because that and main street coming into the avenue, we’re talking about a gateway project,” said Jackson. “We want people to come into the town and understand our history.”center_img Endicott, Deposit, and Walton are all going for the chance to be that project, each with a set goal in mind. Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson specifically mentioned wanting to reshape Washington Avenue as well as creating a park nearby with something that no other town in the area has. She says she wants to also enhance boutique stores, so more people shop locally. Both towns, along with Walton, submitted their applications and are looking forward to the community coming together to fix up their towns, whether they win or not.last_img
