Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition

The Binghamton Regional Sustainability Coalition is planning a meeting to discuss gas drilling and local food systems. Read more about it here. BRSC developed from Broome County’s Plan for Sustainable Economic Development with subsequent public input from the Binghamton Neighborhood Assemblies process. It has been formally meeting since earlier this year. Over 100 stakeholders have aided the formation of the Coalition which has representation from public, private and non-profit entities. It strives to make economic development planning a broad-based, democratic process, with civic engagement as its centerpiece.
