Sen. Chuck Schumer says redevelopment of these properties is long overdue.
Senator Chuck Schumer stopped by Syracuse to urge the owners of three abandoned gas stations at a key gateway to work with the city to sell or redevelop the properties. All three are at the corner of East Brighton Ave. and East Seneca Turnpike. The one at 1001 E. Brighton has been vacant for 15 years.
The two other properties are across the street at 962 E. Brighton Ave. and 571 E. Seneca Turnpike, which are seen behind Sen. Schumer.
Governor Andrew Cuomo’s tax free business plan is taking criticism from state labor groups. The proposal would allow businesses that move onto a SUNY campus to be free of property taxes, sales taxes, and income taxes.
