Working Together Wins At the 2019 State of the City, Mayor Walsh announced the #SyracuseSurge, our strategy for inclusive growth in the New Economy.

Syracuse Surge Proposed by Mayor Walsh in 2019 State of the City.

“At the center of the Syracuse Surge is the creation of the Southside Campus for the New Economy on the southern edge of downtown Syracuse, a campus for technology workforce development and the location of a ground breaking regional Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math school in the grand but vacant Central Tech High School.

When we work together and believe we can, it’s amazing what can be accomplished. We thank the Syracuse Common Council; our local, state and federal government partners; our region’s non-profit and business institutions; our dedicated City employees; and, most important, the people of Syracuse.
