Governor Andrew Cuomo joined local officials Wednesday in Solvay to unveil details of a plan to revitalize the western side of Onondaga Lake.
The $100 million project will include a 75-hundred seat lakefront concert pavilion across from the state fairgrounds. Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney says it fits into the larger picture of the lake’s rebirth.
The story of Onondaga Lake including all of its blemishes will be on display for visitors to this year’s New York State Fair. A new three-thousand square foot exhibit in the Center of Progress building will chronicle the lake’s past as the ancestral grounds of the Onondaga people to its ongoing recovery from decades of industrial and municipal pollution. SUNY E-S-F President Neil Murphy says the space will allow visitors an interactive, hands-on experience.
