Cicero sees significant economic development

— Just as exciting, perhaps, are the new housing choices that will be available to residents, such as the Lyons Farm Project off Route 31 near Bridgeport, extension of the Lyons Runne development off Cicero Center Road, and construction of an upscale Alberici apartment complex, called Tocco Villagio, next to the American Legion just off Route 31 on the Clay-Cicero boundary. These residential projects will lay the groundwork for further commercial development within the town.

Lastly, we all know that addressing infrastructure is costly, but it is also a significant factor for enhancing economic development for our community. We have recently implemented new measures to make dollars go further when addressing the road conditions in the town. This will result in long term savings as even more efficient methods for road repair and maintenance will be utilized and implemented.

Having the right individuals involved with the town’s finances and long range planning have been and will continue to be critical. Collaboration among interested parties has yielded excellent results. Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to work cooperatively with Town Supervisor Jim Corl, Planning Board Chairman Bob Smith, and other board members so that Cicero can be a leader amongst towns during these challenging economic times.

Jessica Zambrano is the deputy supervisor of the town of Cicero.
