Utica, N.Y. - The Utica Common Council voted and approved the city's new Parks Master Plan during Wednesday night's Common Council Meeting.
Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri unveiled the plan in May. It's a plan which had been worked on for the past several years.
The city was awarded $250,000 from Governor Andrew Cuomo's Financial Restructuring Initiative to make this master plan possible.
Palmieri says this plan was created to help guide the future of the city.
With Wednesday night's approval, construction can now begin with Wankel Field in South Utica expected to see the first improvements.
