Chamber supports BGM
The Chamber also issued its support to the Greater Binghamton Airport’s (BGM) Consolidated Funding Application request to Empire State Development for the airport to look into business expansion options on the potential industrial park located on the property around BGM.
BGM is located on approximately 500 acres of land, and much of that land is not currently being used. Over the past 10 years, Broome County has invested over $20 million dollars on these 500 acres on infrastructure improvements to this area in order to make it shovel ready for economic development. This extra funding from Empire State Development would continue the process of economic and business development on BGM’s property and the airport corridor.
