ROME, N.Y. (AP) - Rome wasn’t built in a day - but the city in upstate New York has some redevelopment plans that could get off the ground pretty quickly.

The Observer-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2ftcfH2 ) reports that Rome aims to transform its downtown neighborhoods into vibrant communities that the next generation will want to live in.

The city has won $10 million in funding and investments in the state’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative.

The work will include improvements to the historic Capitol Theater and Zion Episcopal Church; a green rooftop park; and a skating rink outside city hall with plans for winter festivals.

Mayor Jacqueline Izzo says the city has chosen “shovel-ready projects” that can get underway next year.
