Fixing The Hub: Leveraging Better Outcomes for Downtown

2006 Study
Fixing the Hub: Leveraging Better Outcomes for Downtown

The study is in part an outcome of the previous OCL report on strategic government consolidation, which recommended an immediate and comprehensive focus on reinventing downtown as a magnet for the investment and creativity necessary in the new economy and a focus on harnessing the growth potential of the nearby medical and educational institutions to accelerate revitalization of the hub. The study resulted in the first annual Syracuse Downtown Living Tour.
