Take a look at another proposed DRI Project:
183 W. Dominick Street Mixed Use
The proposed project includes the construction of a new mixed use privately owned structure on the existing, undeveloped site. The proposed building would total 30,000 square feet +/- of new construction space. The 3 story building would include a parking garage on the lower level which would be access by the Erie Boulevard access road.
The building will include:
• First floor (fronting Erie Boulevard): Common space for rental units, laundry and structured parking (vehicular and bicycle).
• Second floor (fronting W. Dominick): Commercial units facing West Dominick, with approximately 5 residential units.
• Third floor: Ten to twelve residential units.
Residential units would be combination of one- and two-bedroom market rate units

Take a look at another DRI Project- Erie Boulevard Streetscape and Pedestrian Improvements
This project includes the design and implementation of streetscape and pedestrian improvements at the Erie Boulevard / George Street intersection and along the south side of Erie Boulevard between George Street and Arsenal Street. In its current configuration and design, the intersection of Erie Boulevard / George Street presents barrier and safety hazards for pedestrians. Currently the intersection experiences a high traffic accident rate per NYSDOT. Improvements to the Erie Boulevard / George Street intersection would include the installation of enhanced crosswalk treatments, new accessible curb ramps, curb replacement where needed, and new ornamental lighting and planters on each corner of the intersection. Improvements to the south side of Erie Boulevard between George Street and Arsenal Street would include enhanced crosswalk treatment on the south leg of the Erie Boulevard / Madison Street intersection, sidewalk replacement, pedestrian lighting, ornamental benches, planters, and ornamental street trees.
The proposed improvements would slow traffic, allow for safer pedestrian connections, strengthen the connection between the north and south sides of Erie Boulevard, and encourage alternative modes of transportation helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The project will improve connections for residents and visitors to the City of Rome, and provide better connectivity for the DRI study area overall. The project includes detailed design and implementation of the enhancements. ... See MoreSee Less
This area has those little side roads off the Blvd with lots of parking lot space .... this is where that bus shelter should be going instead of over on Liberty street
I like this idea but I also have to say...we all know what made crossing the boulevard pedestrian safe. The Living Bridge. I miss the old downtown Rome. The fountains and the flowers and trees that were surrounded by cement block seating.
I'd like to know how much these little things are going to cost.
get free money--- spend it foolishly... That pretty well sums up this "Initiative". Put some brains in city hall and stop wasting your money people. This is foolish...
Fix the hole you made in front of my neighbors house on woodland ave months ago. Smh
there's so many roads that need fixing bad!
Link rd is bad too
I can't help but feel the trees and a bench out front of Pat's will kill there business. They change truck tires on bigger rigs right where the benches would be. IMO it could be better spent to put the benches in front of the laundry Matt next door. There's always people there on the stoop
You got that right Mike link rd. Awful...
That's my cousin's shop, Pat's Tires
An enclosed overpass would be amazing. Busy city roads like erie blvd are starting to go up to keep the community safe.
Anyone consider what the future plans are for the old factory buildings behind there
This seems ridiculous. Foolish spending. Benches? Really?
