While some people have grumbled about the state’s $5 million investment in the new Finger Lakes Welcome Center, set to open in May, the city sees the development as beneficial to Geneva and the region.
“I think it’s great that Geneva was chosen for the Welcome Center,” said Acting City Manager Sage Gerling. “It could have gone anywhere in the Finger Lakes.”
The conversion of the city’s event and visitors center into the FLX Welcome Center is being performed by Geneva-based Massa Construction.
“It’s on schedule, but it’s a very tight construction [schedule],” said Gerling.
The state is leasing the building from the city, she explained.
