Welcome Center
As part of an initiative to support and boost upstate New York's tourism industry, the Governor announced in the fall of 2016 that Auburn would be the site of a new downtown welcome center that will allow greater exposure to our deep history and heritage here in Auburn, the Finger Lakes and Central New York regions.  Over the winter of 2016-2017 the City Council embarked on moving this project forward.  The Governor has partnered the City of Auburn with the NYS Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for project design and implementation.  The design process will begin in the spring of 2017 and this webpage will contain information on the process moving forward.

April 11, 2017.  Public Announcement:  There will be some visible signs of preliminary work being done during the month of April as subcontractors begin their work to gather data on the traffic study and site analysis.  At some point in time in April sections of the 25 South Street parking lot will be closed off as they do some ground drilling to determine what is below the surface.  The sections of the lot that are impacted will be closed off just for the day they are being worked on and the remainder of the lot shall be open.  Any closure of the 25 South St. parking lot will be just temporary.

The site of the new downtown welcome center is the city-owned parking lot located at 25 South Street.
