Shaping the Future of Central New York: A Community-Driven Approach to $500 Million in Transformational Investments

CenterState CEO
Economic Strategy

Central New York is on the cusp of a transformative moment with a $500 million Community Investment Fund poised to reshape the region's future. Fourth Economy is at the forefront of this initiative, partnering with CenterState CEO and Empire State Development to craft the pivotal Community Priorities Document (CPD). This crucial roadmap will serve to align hefty investment initiatives with community-driven needs and aspirations. Our role is multifaceted: we are not just aggregators of public opinion but interpreters and strategists. We organize an array of public and stakeholder meetings, along with targeted listening sessions, to capture a broad spectrum of community voices. The insights gleaned are then meticulously analyzed and categorized into thematic areas of focus that form the backbone of the CPD. Ultimately, we steer the development and dissemination of both draft and final versions of this key document, bridging the gap between financial investment and meaningful community impact.
