Public Video Conference for BDC Closure Tuesday

By Jason Weinstein.
The state's Office of People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) has added a local video conference to a list of scheduled hearings on the planned closure of several state developmental centers, including the Broome Developmental Center

OPWDD will take comments from 3:00PM – 5:00PM Tuesday during a conference that will stream at four different locations throughout the state. In the Southern Tier, comments will be taken in Classroom 6 on the second floor of Broome Developmental Center (BDC), 249 Glenwood Rd., Binghamton.

The BDC is scheduled to close in the spring of 2016; it is one of the three state developmental centers slated for closure, a plan expected to be complete by March 2017.
