ENDICOTT, N.Y. - An organization made up of concerned Endicott residents is discussing transformative projects that can improve the Village.
The Endicott Proud group met Monday at the Union-Endicott District Office Boardroom.
The coalition is focusing on improving three areas including the Union District, Washington Avenue, and the Little Italy neighborhood on the Northside.
The Village is one of three municipalities competing alongside Binghamton and Johnson City for $20 million in funding to improve the area.
Endicott is proposing streetscape improvements, similar to the project submitted for the State's Downtown Revitalization Initiative that did not receive funding last summer.
Endicott Proud Co-Chair Pamela Portland-Riddleberger says the Village is turning the corner.
"I definitely think that this is our time. There are so many things happening with technology in our area. During the presentation, we heard about a lot of the opportunities that are coming here to Endicott. This is our chance to really build on it and work together as a community," said Portland-Riddleberger.
The Village submitted 19 potential projects totaling around $20 million for the Greater Binghamton Fund.
The meeting also included a discussion on the expanded activity taking place at the Huron Campus.
Currently, there are 27 companies that occupy the former IBM facility.
