Bagg’s Square Building Will Be Getting A Makeover

Luke Tubia, WIBX

The Bagg’s Square area of Downtown Utica will be getting a bit of a makeover.
Mayor Rob Palmieri has announced that the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties Inc. has awarded a $10,000 grant to fund electrical repairs to the Monument Building in Bagg’s Square.

The City owned building and grounds will be re-lit, renovated and preserved to serve as a centerpiece for Bagg’s Square east and west districts.

Mayor Palmieri wants the renovations to help jump start future restoration of the Square and its recent rebirth as an entertainment and cultural corridor.

“This is yet another grassroots effort which partners the City with volunteers, community leaders and the Community Foundation to seed neighborhood improvement and economic growth along an important entrance to our City,” Mayor Palmieri said. “I want to thank the Community Foundation and its CEO Peggy O’Shea for investing and believing in Utica’s potential.”

The project is being organized by the Genesis Group and Keep Mohawk Valley Beautiful. The GE Elfuns, IBEW Local Union 43, and Engler Electric have joined forces with the City’s DPW to to help plan and finish a more modernized and economical framework that is enabling the City to light up the historic area for both residents and visitors.

The Bagg’s Square East and West Districts include a target area that runs from the Utica Auditorium to Union Station.
