Utica Mayor says master plan implementation will come during second term

By By JOLEEN FERRIS

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Utica Mayor David Roefaro plans to make sure his master plan for the city doesn't become a $300,000 footnote by seeking and winning a second term in office so he can see the plan through and implemented.

The mayor said Monday that the first four years in office are for "assembling building blocks" and that the second four-year term is for "the actual building."

Mayor Roefaro said his master plan encompasses everything from the city's parks system to economic development and everything in between.

Saratoga Associates is formulating the plan and the mayor say it should be ready to be shared with the public within the next few weeks.
