Saratoga County RPC Community Development


Michelle DeGarmo administers our Community Development programs through Marvin & Company. Founded in 1976, Marvin & Company originally provided design and oversight of historic preservation and adaptive re-use projects.  Since then they have expanded to provide comprehensive community development consulting services.  Marvin & Company specializes in the design and implementation of housing and community development grant programs for municipalities and not-for-profit agencies.

Michelle’s vision, “I love living in Saratoga County. We have some of the best neighborhoods, school districts, art and cultural centers, and recreation opportunities in Upstate New York. OK, so I’m probably biased, what with living here most of my life. But seriously, most people I know have tried to live elsewhere, and they always seem to come back.  Working with Saratoga County RPC has offered me the opportunity to give back to my community. This blog will highlight the things we can do together to keep Saratoga County such a wonderful place to visit, work, and live”. Michelle can be reached at:
