Utica Mayor Elect Palmieri Name's "Quality of Life" Committee

Pin It Now!

Community Affairs Specialist and Committee Co-Facilitator Gene Allen describes the Committee's main function is to identify key factors that influence quality of life in the City's neighborhoods. Issues that have a widespread negative impact on our community including illegal drug activities, nuisance properties, prostitution, and unauthorized dumping will be addressed. The Committee will also focus on codes enforcement, noise ordinance, and animal control. He also sated that these Quality of Life Indicators directly affect people’s perceptions of the City and that we need to create a pleasant and safe environment for people to live and work.

The Committee will convene at 6 PM on Wednesday, December 21 at the Utica City Hall Common Council Chambers to begin addressing the City's Quality of Life issues. An initial assessment is targeted to be prepared for the Mayor's review by the end of March.
