NEIGHBORHOODS: Little-noticed cuts may hurt neighborhoods By Jeremy Moule on January 24, 2012 Governor Andrew Cuomo's state budget proposal for 2012-2013 eliminates a pair of programs that directly impact urban neighborhoods. Cuomo's plan cuts funding for the state's Rural and Neighborhood Preservation Programs grants, which partially fund neighborhood groups like the South Wedge Planning Committee, Group 14621, North East Area Development, and South East Area Coalition. The budget also creates a new Foreclosure Relief Unit within the Department of Financial Services, seemingly at the expense of foreclosure legal assistance programs. The new unit would provide counseling and mediation services to help homeowners stay in their homes, say budget materials. David Newstadt, a spokesperson ...

The area’s largest employers registered 20,340 workers on December 31, 2011. According to abc wham's Rachal Barhart "The U of R’s impact on the regional economy goes far beyond its own payroll. A 2010 Center for Governmental Research study says the college is responsible for 47,000 direct and indirect jobs, which pay $2.3 billion in wages. The U of R’s challenges as it grows will be to maintain funding levels and manage infrastructure. The Route 390 Interchange project begins to address some of the needs regarding access to campus."

In an article written in the Democrat and Chronicle in late December the typical American household will have spent $4,155 filling up in 2011, a record.

  Diana Carter of the Democrat and Chronicle writes: A Siena College survey showed consumer confidence here is the highest in the state, and a financial news website labeled Rochester as one of 10 cities "poised for greatness in 2012." TheStreet.com, a widely followed site, mentioned the region's job growth and stable real estate market.   "Sure, there are cold winters, lake-effect snow and a sky that turns gray in October and usually stays that way until April," wrote Jason Notte, a Boston-based writer. "But the city that's been shrinking since the 1960s feels downright cozy in the treat-stocked aisles of a Wegmans supermarket, over a cheeseburger-and-mac-salad garbage plate at Nick Tahou's or with a Genny Cream Ale and a rack of ribs at Dinosaur Barbecue.   "It's shockingly stable, an...

In an article written by JOSEPH SPECTOR  of the Albany bureau chief Joseph writes Rochester leaders on Friday hailed a pending announcement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to fund a $100 million upgrade to Interstate 390 in the city, calling it a transformative project that will bolster the region's economy. The Interstate 390 project has been on the drawing board for years but has struggled to secure state and federal funding. The project has been viewed as critical to providing better access to the city's largest employer, the University of Rochester, as well as the nearby Monroe Community College and Rochester Institute of Technology. The project will begin this year, Cuomo's office told Gannett's Albany Bureau on Friday. The new interchange on Interstate 390 at Kendrick Road will include new ...

Posted on January 5, 2012  by Rick Karlin, Capitol bureau in Real Estate, Wall Street Rick writes regarding Gov. Andrew Cuomo's plan for helping people in foreclosure. Dept. of Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky fears a “potential mountain of foreclosures” is looming in New York. To forestall it, he’s launching a unit that will help people avoid losing their homes, if possible, and crack down on foreclosure abuses. While mass foreclosures have been more of a headline story in boom-and-bust Sun Belt states more than the Northeast, Lawsky believes the trend will eventually catch up with the Empire State. Gov. Andrew Cuomo mentioned creation of a Foreclosure Relief Unit within Lawsky’s operation during Wednesday’s State of the State speech; on Thursday, Lawsky expounded on t...
