A project by a private developer that was going to house a new Syracuse University bookstore and Fitness Center has to be put on hold after several financial problems couldn't get resolved. Cameron Group was gong to build the center on University Ave., adjacent to an existing parking garage. The University was then going to lease back most of the space to house its primary bookstore, while the developer would rent space to other retailers.
Children’s and Families’ health was the focus of a new Syracuse city proposal to restrict smoking in public places. The measure passed, but not without concerns over who it might turn off of Syracuse’s festivals and events.
