After decades of New York State economic development boondoggles, I'm not entirely convinced that the new Regional Economic Development Councils are going to be a dramatic improvement. Nor is it clear to me - despite growing up in and loving the Southern Tier - that Tompkins County really belongs economically in that region.
However, we seem to be part of the Southern Tier Regional Council, and they're coming to pay a visit to Ithaca:
PUBLIC FORUM in ITHACA - Thursday, September 8, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., Women's Community Building, 100 W. Seneca St., Ithaca
Even if you can't make it, however, please take a moment or several to fill out their survey, which closes September 15th.Posted by simon at August 26, 2011 6:44 AM in New York State , economy
