JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — At the Binghamton University School of Pharmacy, a presentation was given on Johnson City’s resurgence.
Residents came out to hear what updates officials have on the area’s restoration and even learned a little about its history, demonstrating with state of the art technology.
Distinguished B.U. Geography professors John Frazier and Norah Henry were guest speakers. They shared with stakeholders how local businesses are doing. They say in the past few years, many new ones have sprouted up and vacant buildings are quickly being filled, which they say will eventually boost the economy.
“There are more eateries and other things. So those are going to change on Main street. But beyond Main street, Grand avenue, Floral, other parts of the village are gonna change as well,” said Frazier.
The pharmacy school’s dean shared the progress of the school. Along with its initiative to become a nationally renowned school, officials say it is increasing the village’s foot traffic and expect that to rise even more when it becomes fully accredited in 2021.
