Thursday, October 29, 2015

SWBR's Don Naetzker led the community in a design workshop as part of the Comprehensive Master Plan with the City of Elmira. Over the last three days a planning team, community leaders and residents have been looking into Elmira's flaws and figuring out ways to fix them. Some of the main suggestions involve housing, streets, the Chemung River and Elmira College. In regards to housing, one of the main ideas towards revitalizing downtown was the question of how to appeal to younger generations. The idea is to bring a more exciting living ambiance to Downtown Elmira that will appeal to millennials. - See more at:
