Governor Cuomo’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative isn’t the only state funding contest that has peaked interest in Cayuga County.
The Central New York Regional Economic Development Council has released its 2017 progress report, with 38 priority projects for this year’s contest. Cayuga Strategic Solutions Executive Director Tracy Verrier says Cayuga County is well positioned with seven major projects on the list.
Verrier tells Finger Lakes News Radio the seven projects would be a major boost to the county’s economy.
Currier Plastics’ $9.9 Million expansion in Auburn is the largest of the seven projects. The Council supports projects in a five-county area.
