Southside Rising Plans Unveiled

Plans involve redeveloping Brand Park Pool

SOUTH SIDE RISE PLANS
ELMIRA N.Y--(WENY-TV)-- Redeveloping Brand Park pool, and sprucing up abandoned properties are just a few of the goals for the Southside Rising Redevelopment project.  The Brand park pool re-development would fill the pool in and create a park with plants, grass, a children's play area and stage where the pool is now. The City says moving forward the pool would have to be tested for strength before it was filled in and that the structure is eligible for placement on the historic register. The plan also calls for renovations to properties depressed after industries left Elmira.
