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.
