Administrative History

In 1993 following the Pentagon's closing of the Griffiss Air Force Base (Rome, New York ), Governor Mario Cuomo announced the formation of a task force to explore the economic development possibilities of the base and named Secretary of State Gail Shaffer as one of his representatives to the Griffiss Redevelopment Planning Council. The Planning Council, in cooperation with the Griffiss Local Development Council, sought to effect the development and implementation of a comprehensive strategy to maintain and expand the uses and viability of the former base through links with federal, state, and local governments, business, and academia.
