City of Binghamton, New York

Susquehanna Heritage Area Management Plan

The Susquehanna Heritage Area Management Plan Amendment, completed in December of 2009, builds upon previous efforts that have been developed and implemented since the Susquehanna Heritage Area was recognized by the New York State legislature in 1982.  The goal of the plan was to further identify, promote, and develop the historic, cultural, recreational, and natural resources of an expanded Susquehanna Heritage Area, encompassing Broome and Tioga Counties.  The plan identifies strategies for the enhancement of unique cultural and natural resources in Broome and Tioga Counties and will guide the implementation of programs and projects to foster economic revitalization and enhance quality of life throughout the region. 

Binghamton City Council approved the Susquehanna Heritage Area Management Plan Amendment and boundary expansion in July 2010.  The document is available online from the Broome County Planning Department website.
