Broome County government seal

Broome County is ready to adopt a development plan to meet the needs of the community in the next ten years for the first time in decades. 

The last time the county adopted a Comprehensive Plan was about fifty years ago.  The proposals range from urban renewal and rural preservation to flood mitigation.

or innovation districts in Binghamton, Endicott and Johnson City designed to attract development. 

A large part of the Binghamton piece involves the proposed hi-tech incubator on Hawley Street which had been named last week in the award of  New York State funding for the Southern Tier through the Governor’s StartUp NY initiative.

Johnson City’s zone is to be centered on the United Health Services medical industry while Endicott’s district focuses on the electronics industry.

The county is also looking to renovate former industrial buildings in the region and push to include young professionals in planning boards and preserve scenic rural and recreational areas.
