The meeting will be Wednesday, September 25th at 7 p.m. in the Cecile Community Center, located at 174 West Seneca Turnpike

 This workshop will present the final design concept and project details that have been developed by the project team.

All residents, business owners, property owners, and outdoor recreation enthusiasts are invited to participate in the discussion. 

The City of Syracuse was awarded a Local Waterfront Revitalization Program grant from the New York State Department of State to conduct this work, which seeks to implement the recommendations of the 2013 Revitalization Strategy for Onondaga Creek.

Neighborhood and Business Development (NBD) City of Syracuse Survey

Every five years our department submits a Consolidated Plan to HUD. “The Consolidated Plan is designed to help states and local jurisdictions to assess their affordable housing and community development needs and market conditions, and to make data-driven, place-based investment decisions” (more info can be found here: ).  Our department would like to get the public’s input regarding city-wide housing and neighborhood conditions in order to better inform the plan. Below are the links for two surveys; one is for residents of the city to complete and the other is for service providers who work in the city. This survey will help us understand how best to direct funding to address the most pressing needs of neighborhoods and we therefore appreciate any feedback!
