STATE OF THE CITY: Auburn city manager touts parks projects

Plans for current and future Auburn projects were laid on the table at the State of the County and City luncheon in Auburn Thursday.

Noting that it was a “tough year for construction in downtown Auburn,” City Manager Jeff Dygert told the audience at the Holiday Inn that a lot was accomplished.

After being introduced by Auburn Mayor Michael Quill, who commended the Auburn Local Planning Committee for its work on selecting 18 Downtown Revitalization Initiative projects, Dygert tackled a hearty list of finished and almost completed city projects. The list included park improvements, infrastructure projects and municipal utility enhancements.

Auburn parks received a lot of attention this past year. The Owasco River Greenway Trail, Casey Park, Falcon Park all got some “love and attention,” Dygert said.

The Owasco Greenway trail, a 12-mile pedestrian and bicycle path that connects Emerson Park to Wadsworth Park, had a scenic overlook of the Owasco River installed on Genesee Street. Dygert said the project still has some work to be done, but it’s just about wrapped up.
