Attending Broome County Legislative Committee Meetings
We attended and participated in multiple Broome County Legislative Committee Meetings. These meetings consisted of discussions on economic development, education, culture and financing in Broome County. We also met with the newly appointed heads of the different county departments and newly elected Legislators. It will be a pleasure getting to know all of the new people, and we look forward to working side by side with them to continue the progress in Broome County.
We participated in a discussion on climate-adaptive design and now to create waterfronts. Broome County has faced its share of significant flood events over the last several years. However, many municipalities across the country have been able to use their waterfronts as an advantage to attract tourism and commerce. During this discussion, we learned and participated in how to ensure our riverfront is both safe and resistant to flooding, while also being beautiful and attractive as a social space.
We attended the Airport Advisory Board Committee meeting at the Greater Binghamton Airport. Future air service at BGM, cost savings from the new infrastructure updates, and development of the corporate park were discussed. Look for more updates on this going forward!
