Onondaga Citizen’s League to Hold “Design” Sessions for Study of CNY Economy

By Staff

 

OCLThe Onondaga Citizen’s League (OCL) will begin its latest community study, titled “How CNY Works,” with three identical “scoping” (or design) sessions the week of Aug. 22 to Aug. 26.

The sessions will be free, and open to the public, and the remaining sessions will be held as follows:

  • Wednesday, Aug. 24, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., at Le Moyne College (Mitchell Hall, room 113);
  • and, Friday, Aug. 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., at WCNY (Educational Center), 415 W. Fayette St. Participants may use the free parking lot, near the corner of Wyoming and Marcellus streets, across from WCNY.

According to OCL officials, the new study will build upon the group’s prior studies by exploring how CNY’s economy and employment patterns have changed over the years; how they continue to change today; what drives these changes; and what is needed to make CNY’s economy thrive, and benefit all who call CNY home.

The group has encouraged the public to attend the scoping sessions to ensure the study is “as relevant, thorough and as useful as possible.”

OCL’s said its community studies focus on issues of interest and importance to the CNY region, and provide a forum for local citizens and recognized leaders to work side by side in carrying out the study, in order to produce the outcomes.

Sessions for the study will begin in September, and the locations and times will be announced.
