Please share the following invitation from the Urban Jobs Task Force. The WCCNY is a member of the UJTF and we Stand Up for City Jobs!
“On Tuesday, August 21 at 8:30 am in the Common Council Chambers (city hall, 3rd flr) the Syracuse Industrial Development (SIDA) Board is conducting two public hearings about two development projects.
These two projects are asking for a real property, sales and mortgage recording tax exemptions.
The Urban Jobs Task Force wants to fill the Common Council Chambers for these hearings to impress the city and the SIDA board that these tax exemptions must come with community benefits in the forms of city hiring and contracting. See attached flyer.
One project is quite big: a $31 M redevelopment of the Post-Standard building by VIP Structures. The UJTF successfully worked with VIP on the PriceRite Build. We will be urging VIP to work with us again and urging SIDA to make it verifiable and enforceable policy that developers getting city tax breaks must hire out of city and give contracts to Minority and women-owned firms.
The second project is smaller: a $5 M consolidation at 222 Teal Ave of Central Restaurant Supply of N. Salina and Gerharz Equipment Inc at East Molloy Rd.”
