Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh’s statement on Common Council approval of an agreement to create mixed-use property at the former Syracuse Developmental Center.
“Syracuse took a major step toward creating good jobs and quality housing at the former Syracuse Developmental Center property on the city’s west side today. I thank the Common Council for its due diligence and unanimous approval of the agreement to design and create a mixed income housing and technology manufacturing development on the long vacant property. I am grateful for the strong support of Governor Hochul for our vision for the property and the commitment of New York State for funding to prepare the site. We will continue to engage the community as we take the next steps toward a productive and positive future for the site.”
