CBD Welcomes Micron to Central New York


CBD’s own Chuck Sangster and Eric Will attended the CenterState CEO Investor Meeting on October 11th to welcome Micron’s head of State & Local Government Relations, Nick Stowell, and learn about the scope of Micron’s investment in Central New York and the vital community-led revitalization efforts that helped to secure this project. 

Governor Kathy Hochul has stated that “Micron’s historic $100 billion investment secures a bright economic future for generations of New Yorkers in Onondaga County and across the state, and this transformative project cements New York’s manufacturing leadership. In addition to nearly 50,000 jobs, deep commitments to sustainability, and opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses and disadvantaged communities, this project’s $500 million community fund will sustain the region in the long term with investments in workforce, housing, and infrastructure. I am thrilled that President Biden could join us for this once-in-a-generation announcement, and I look forward to working closely with our local, state, and federal partners, as well as the business and labor communities, to bring one of the largest economic development projects in U.S. history to fruition.” 

Since this initial meeting, we have been preparing for the changes that are sure to come. Our team continues to celebrate Micron’s commitment to Central New York and its future development.
