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 announcement of the project is part of Governor Cuomo's proposed budget, and comes after a plan to build a sports stadium in Downtown Syracuse fell through due to concerns from Mayor Stephanie Miner.
