Roger Swanson of the New York Department of State will meet with directors of the Southern Tier West Regional Planning Board Friday to present final ratings for 1991 project applications to the Appalachian Regional Commission.
The 2 p.m. session at the Southern Tier West offices will be the final step in the process before applications are sent to the agency for funding.
Directors met Oct. 5 to rank 19 applications and gave priority to an application from the Olean YMCA. If funded, the Association for Retarded Children would provide $101,956 for a day-care center in the Cattaraugus County Economic Development Zone. The total project -- estimated at $254,919 -- would accommodate 55 preschool children. Dresser-Rand Corp. has endorsed the center and is expected to participate.
