South Utica Newsletter #9

Welcome to South Utica Newsletter #9 by Councilperson Celeste Friend! In this issue, the newsletter reflects on the record voter turnout in the 2020 election and the various ways people were able to vote. It also provides updates on flooding mitigation efforts, the new zoning ordinance, and a ride-along experience with the Utica Police Department. The newsletter highlights the old Bendix site’s status, a spotlight on Stathis Greek Restaurant & Gyro, and a call for South Utica gardeners. Councilperson Friend’s votes on the Council are detailed, and information on constituent hours and the importance of beautifying neighborhoods through gardening is included.
