Looking To Help Support The Concept Of Good Jobs? Come Out On February 3, 2011

The Tech City Campus is in Kingston up for a public meeting on their draft proposal to renovate the Tech City/ former IBM Kingston. The East Campus currently has 22 industrial and office buildings with over 2.1 million square feet.

To put it plainly, the owner has been sneaking in whoever he can to do the work there. We are planning on being present that night to bring the subject of good paying construction jobs to the table and the fact that "freewheeling it" will create a price to pay if illegals and sub standard jobs are the result.

The proposed plan would be to build a multi-use development to include light industrial, office, research and development, manufacturing, educational, wellness, neighborhood retail, restaurant, entertainment and multi-family residential uses, along with accessory parking.


The public meeting will be held on February 3, 2011 at 7:00PM at the Town of Ulster Town Hall.
