The City of Binghamton is actively implementing its Local Waterfront Revitalization Program, and a major focus has involved development of the Chenango River Promenade, a public trail and public venue, which the City has been constructing in phases. The promenade serves to bring people to the downtown, and has had a very positive impact on the City’s downtown revitalization. Also, building on recent waterfront improvements, the City of Binghamton is developing revitalization strategies for two Chenango River waterfront neighborhoods impacted by disinvestment: the First Ward neighborhood and the North Chenango River corridor. Strategic objectives include the creation of sustainable and vibrant mixed-use neighborhoods, as well as improved connectivity to the Chenango River.
