BLUEPRINT BINGHAMTON: FORWARD TOGETHER is an effort by the City of Binghamton to update the City’s Comprehensive Plan. The City was awarded a Community Challenge Planning Grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to fund the plan. The Department of Planning, Housing, and Community Development oversees the creation of Blueprint Binghamton, with help from a Steering Committee convened to help guide the process.
