Syracuse Speaks-What's Ahead For The City In 2021?

Syracuse has a lot on its to-do list in the new year. Primarily, the city is trying to find ways to fiscally and physically recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. But they’re also working on police reform, long-standing economic development initiatives, and anticipating progress on the I-81 project.


We’re joined by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh, who recently delivered his State of the City address with the city in a state none of us could have ever imagined a year ago.

Also on the program, we'll hear from those working directly on economic development, advancing ‘Smart City’ gains, and police, as well as community leaders on what they are looking forward to in the new year.
