A plethora of different renovation plans have been brought up to help kick start the economy in Syracuse. The latest was introduced by Mayor Ben Walsh. His plan includes a major redevelopment of the south end of downtown Syracuse. The plan involves more than $200 million in public and private investments.
Walsh outlined his strategy in his "State of the City" address.
He states that this is a long term project and suggested that "it could be the biggest economic growth initiative ever proposed by city government."
Much of the project is still in the planning phases. One concrete segment is the re-opening of Central Tech; a city high school that will specialize in science, technology, engineering, arts & math.
