AUBURN — The third time is the charm.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited Auburn Friday to announce that the city has won a $10 million grant in the third round of the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative. The program, which launched in 2016, awards $100 million to 10 municipalities — one in each of the state’s regional economic development councils.
Auburn applied for the grant in 2016 and 2017, but lost to Cortland and Oswego in the past competitions. This year, the city was the Central New York Regional Economic Development Council’s choice for the award.
