Governor Andrew Cuomo made a stop in Rome on Monday.

Cuomo was at the Mohawk Valley Community College Rome campus to announce the approval of 11 projects for the City under the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative award.

"The City of Rome is on the cusp of transformation, and these critical resources will help the community grow and prosper for generations to come,"Cuomo said. "These projects will build on our progress and help usher in a new era of technology and advanced manufacturing to drive growth and economic energy throughout the Mohawk Valley."

Rome Mayor Jacqueline Izzo says the projects will go a long way toward transforming downtown Rome.

Projects approved include construction of an advanced manufacturing facility, a mixed use development on West Dominick Street, demolition of the Liberty George parking garage and public enhancements to City Hall.

Rome was named a DRI Round 2 winner in September.
