Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee Releases Annual Report and Holds First Micron Preparation Summit

Posted on June 13, 2024

Micron Steering Committee 2024

The Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee released its Annual Report to update the community on its planning and progress. GOFCC Executive Director Sara Broadwell serves as the Work Group Chair for Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism. Rob Simpson, president of CenterState CEO joined Sara Broadwell at a summit to highlight how the community plans to maximize the opportunities that will be created by Micron's historic investment.

The Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee was launched in early 2023 to bring together stakeholders and interested members of the public from across Oswego County and beyond to discuss and plan for Oswego County’s role in contributing to this historic opportunity in New York State—Micron’s planned investment of $100 billion in the region over the next twenty years.

Micron’s megafab chip plant, located just over Oswego County’s border in Clay, NY, is a catalyst for transformational renewal in the Central New York region and across New York State. As Oswego County’s only public comprehensive university and as an economic driver for the state, SUNY Oswego is proud to serve as the lead convener of the Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee.

Recently, SUNY Oswego President Dr. Peter Nwosu was interviewed by NewsChannel 9, to discuss the committee and the impact it hopes to have on our region as we welcome Micron to our community.

Watch the interview and read the committee's 2023 Annual Report below.
