Mapping Local History – Syracuse’s West Side

EDR is thrilled to have been awarded a contract from the City of Syracuse to undertake the second phase of a comprehensive historic resources survey for the City.  The goal of the project is to identify and map new historic districts and historic properties to allow for better planning and stewardship of Syracuse’s historic and architectural legacy.  The current contract is the second part of a three-phase survey plan and encompasses the City’s west side, including the neighborhoods of Brighton, Elmwood, Far Westside, Near Westside, Park Avenue, Skunk City, Southside, Southwest, Strathmore and Tipperary Hill.

EDR’s Cultural Resources staff looks forward to working closely with the Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency, New York State Historic Preservation Office, Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board, Preservation Association of Central New York, Onondaga Historical Association, and other partners to complete this important preservation planning project.  The historic resources survey is being funded by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation under a Certified Local Government (CLG) grant.
