Broome County Development Project Spotlight

Broome County...a good life



Workforce and Talent Attraction. We recently launched our newest economic development initiative promoting Broome County as the place for the ideal work/life balance. We think a good life is about choice, and in Broome County, there is much to offer. Whether you are originally from the Upstate area, relocating  to the community, an entrepreneur, a civic-minded individual, or all of the above, Broome County presents great choices in creating a successful work/life balance at every stage of life.

This initiative will focus on the stories of those choosing Broome for a challenging and rewarding professional and personal life. Because Broome County is a good life. This effort is part of a larger workforce development study underway and part of our next strategic plan, of which we outlined in our latest blog post. We look forward to working with our partners to forge a path for economic prosperity in the years to come.

STRATEGIC INDUSTRIAL AND COST ADVANTAGES

With major highway systems intersecting in Binghamton, the area has become known as the crossroads of the Southern Tier. The Southern Tier Expressway, NY Route 17 (future I-86), crosses the area in an east-west direction and places Binghamton on a direct, limited access route between New York City and major Midwestern cities, including Chicago and Cleveland.

The North-South Expressway, Interstate 81, ties the region to Canada, central New York, Pennsylvania and points South. Interstate 88 links Binghamton directly to Albany, New York State’s capital, and to other important northeastern markets, including Boston and Montreal.
