ROME, N.Y. -- The Rome Common Council is seeking funding for two downtown projects.

Rome has applied for two new downtown projects, the first is to have the Copper City Commons project on West Dominick Street. That includes new seating and plazas.

And the other is to have the Rome terminal building renovation at Bellamy Harbor Park. The plan includes restrooms and lots of space for entertainment among other things.

"We've spent millions already in the barge canal area, now this would open up an entertainment space for us,” said Rome Mayor Jackie Izzo.

The common council will be voting on the proposals at their next meeting.
