Binghamton Prepares for Upstate Revitalization Initiative
Thursday could be a transformative day for The Southern Tier. Our region is one of seven upstate competing for the $500 million prize in the Upstate Revitalization Initiative.
Three of the seven regions will win the top prize. Our area's plan focuses on four initiatives: -Building the Greater Binghamton Innovation System -Investing in advanced manufacturing -Transforming the food and agriculture industry -Promoting The Southern Tier's innovative culture.
Binghamton university President Harvey Stenger says, "those four initiatives are outstanding. I think they are the things people are going to remember about this plan."
Results from the URI will be announced in Albany on Thursday morning at 10:30.
