Public Hearing Set for Binghamton Stadium Neighborhood Plan
Residents are being invited to a public meeting as work winds down on planning what the area around Binghamton’s downtown baseball stadium will look like in the future.
The Stadium District Master Plan will be up for discussion at the meeting Thursday, October 7 at 6 p.m. in the Decker Room of the Jeffrey Kraham Broome County Public Library on Court Street in Binghamton.
The City announced efforts to develop a “Stadium District Master Plan” in May to guide public investment and development near the baseball stadium on Henry Street.
Mayor Richard David, in a news release, notes the main goal of the plan is to drive “transformative projects” in housing, infrastructure and economic development in the neighborhood.
The Ithaca design company, Whitham Planning & Design was hired by the City to complete the plan by the end of this year at a cost of $100,000. Half of that cost is covered by a $50,000 grant from Empire State Development.
The survey launched in May has reportedly garnered more than 400 responses.
