Southern Tier Path Through History Committee holds public hearing

BINGHAMTON – The Southern Tier Regional Path Through History Committee will hold a public meeting to generate input for the development of its $100,000 marketing plan to encourage tourism, local economic development and serve as an education tool as part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Path Through History initiative.

The meeting will be held at 1 p.m., Feb. 6, in Mendela Room C of the University Union Building at Binghamton University, 4400 Vestal Parkway in Vestal.



The Path Through History, initially proposed by Governor Cuomo last summer, is a road map tying historically and culturally significant sites throughout New York together to promote tourism and surge economic development. The Cuomo Administration has allocated a total $1 million in funding to get the project off the ground.

The Southern Tier Region is composed of Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Delaware, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga and Tompkins counties. Historians, historic site managers and those generally interested in promoting the history of New York State are invited to attend the meeting.

Pre-registration is requested by Feb. 5. To pre-register, contact Gerry Smith at 595-0176 or via email, historysmiths@stny.rr.com.
