Month in Review November 2015


frank__hips.JPGCan you believe it has already been one month since Election Day 2015?  We can’t either, because we’ve done so much in such a small amount of time since then.  Here is an update towards continuing to build a Syracuse that works for #AllOfUs.

OUR SUCCESSES and PROGRESS:

TAKE ACTION:

Reject COR’s Application to OCIDA

Thanks to my friend KC for the following summary of the OCIDA (Onondaga County Industrial Development Agency) COR tax break application for Inner Harbor developments:

"COR had been working with SIDA (Syracuse Industrial Development Agency) but, due to not agreeing with a recent assessment value of its property, decided to take its PILOT to OCIDA instead of staying loyal to SIDA. The effect of this ... Our City's resources will still have to respond to COR's property with public safety, infrastructure and engineering needs, but the City will not be receiving property taxes, it will be the County that receives the taxes. The city will be then given a currently undetermined amount of money from those taxes the County receives. Also associated with this is that, currently 42% of the City's property tax dollars go to SCSD (Syracuse City School District). So, in a way, COR is hurting our children by going to OCIDA."

Please contact the OCIDA Board Members and demand they decline COR's application for tax relief at the Inner Harbor development projects.

NEXT MEETING of OCIDA

On tuesday December 1st, multiple city groups and residents came out to speak against COR's application to OCIDA. However, no board members or COR representatives were there to hear the community’s concerns. Now, the OCIDA board will be voting on COR's application on December 15th, join us in standing up for Syracuse!
