Our Mission

The mission of the FLX Gateway CDC is to leverage the strengths of Schuyler County and the region through Enhanced Commercial Activities and Economic Development.

Our Story

Finger Lakes Gateway Community Development Corporation (FLX CDC) is a 501(c)3          non-profit organization, which was formed in June 2016. 


Our goal is to improve the economic well-being in Schuyler County, and the region, through a community-driven, collaborative approach that fosters economic vitality by attracting new capital investment; facilitating commercial and residential development; and creating sustainable, living wage employment opportunities.


The FLX Gateway CDC focuses its efforts on community-focused activities, which include beautification efforts like flower planters and signage, themed décor for race season, organized clean-up efforts, and spearheading the new co-working space in downtown Watkins Glen, to name a few.


Opportunity to support our community exist through a number of committees as well as a committed Board of Directors, noted below. We hope you will stay connected and get involved with our work. Contact us for more information.
