In DRI Era, Historical Society

Opens Urban Renewal Exhibit

Against a backdrop of aerial photos from the Urban Renewal era, Bob Brzozowski, Greater Oneonta Historical Society executive director, welcomes visitors to “Urban Redevelopment: Oneonta’s Downtown in the ’60s and ’70s,” this afternoon at the opening reception.  The aerial photos, showing the City of the Hills before and after a few dozen downtown buildings were demolished, was designed to provide historical perspective as the city moves forward with its DRI, the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative.  The aerials were in the former Common Council conference room, and became available when the space was converted into City Manager George Korthauer’s office.  At right is an architect’s drawing of a 10-story apartment house proposed for what is now Muller Plaza.
