Ongoing Projects & Initiatives
EDGE remains proud of its collaborative partnerships with public and private sector stakeholders. We have been instrumental in sparking initiatives that have attracted new high technology investments and supported measures to build vibrant communities. We work collaboratively in Oneida County, Herkimer County, the Cities of Rome, Utica, Sherrill, and the many towns and villages that make up our diverse geographic and economic landscape.
We are in the midst of a historic impact on the Upstate economy, right here in the Utica-Rome area. Site discussions continue as Central New York, the Mohawk Valley, and Capital Region are well positioned to emerge as a major semiconductor and advanced electronics hub along the I-90 corridor. We continue to remediate brownfields across the region with the assistance of EPA funding.
Our industries are growing and changing as the region continues an upward trajectory, with planning projects and ongoing initiatives serving as an integral part of EDGE’s daily operations and long term strategies.
