Public Hearing on Potential Hi-tech Business

A public hearing, which is required by the UDC (Urban Development Corporation) Act, will be held by the Corporation at the Cicero Town Hall, located at 8236 South Main Street, Cicero, New York on February 14, 2017, at 9:30 am to consider a plan to do research and development within the Town of Cicero for the Unmanned Secure Autonomous Flight Environment (U-SAFE) Capital Project in Onondaga County. This would entail development of hi-tech drones for an emerging market and would have positive benefits for our Town of Cicero.

This is potentially a great project for Cicero. I invite everyone to attend this hearing to learn about an exciting opportunity for hi tech job creation in our Town.  It’s also an opportunity to ask questions and to express your opinions. .
