We Support #NoHospitalDowntown

Utica doesn’t need a 5th hospital district!

Downtown Utica’s Columbia Lafayette Neighborhood is currently productive with many businesses.

The single blighted block on Columbia Street is only due to past failed urban renewal programs, but these buildings represent a golden opportunity that other cities are embracing. This historic neighborhood is the perfect setting for additional redevelopment and adaptive reuse.

Downtown revitalization has - and continues - in all neighboring districts; Varick Street & the Brewery District, Bagg’s Square & Utica AUD, the Arts District with MWPAI, as well as along the Genesee Street Business District with Franklin Square!
