  • Area 1 – Downtown
    The Living Heart of Syracuse

    The Downtown Planning Council is dedicated to making Downtown Syracuse a desirable, accessible place to live, work, and shop.

    Downtown is the business center of the City. Within the Downtown area are several historic buildings as well as more modern structures that provide office and retail space to many firms and retailers. Its grid-like street structure is intersected by Onondaga and Genesee Streets. The major public plazas in Downtown are Armory Square, Hanover Square, Columbus Circle and Clinton Square. There are also a number of urban cultural parks which provide open space for formal events as well as places to spend a lunch hour in the outdoors.

    Next meeting: Wed., September, 20th at 5:30 p.m., Central Library, 447 S. Salina St., CNY Meeting Room, 3rd Floor. (please note new location)
      Agendas and Minutes are posted here.

    Syracuse Neighborhoods in Action
    Syracuse’s neighborhoods are the focus of a vibrant and involved citizenry. The City is as strong as the commitment and dedication of its leadership – from the Southside Neighborhood Action Group’s Block Captains to the volunteers who help clean our parks every Earth Day to the teachers who mold our future leaders and the Police and Firefighters who maintain our safety. The diverse associations throughout Syracuse add immeasurably to civic life and are constantly working to make Syracuse a better place to live, work, learn, play and raise a family.
