Such things narrow the gap caused by differences in state/property taxes between states.
More...the upgrade is up to $45 million.
Syracuse airport to get $45 million upgrade, create 869 construction jobs
I wonder if they are going to get rid of those weird booths one has to go through to after landing in Syracuse? They have green and red lights and appear to serve no purpose except to slow people down for no reason.
I am far from a world traveler. Might have landed in 30 or 40 airports in my life. Hancock is the only one I have run into that has these booths. Bizarre.
They are meant to be replacements for having TSA agents staff exits:
Syracuse airport renovation introduces new 'exit portals'
NBC News: Do Syracuse airport's new exit portals mark arrival of police state?
feel like just "4-5" years ago his was happening soon. no announcements lately pushed this out 2-3 more years now doesnt it?
I think introducing an unnecessary bottleneck is irritating, foolish, dangerous (what happens if there is a fire) and a huge waste of money. Someone should ask passengers what they think. I know what the answer is already.
There certainly are a lot of things viewed as cost-saving that are in reality, inefficient and in some cases, dangerous.
We have no income tax, so our property taxes are quit high.
I wonder how they insure that only one person goes in at a time. Oh, yeah, they'll have to man the area.
Actually up to three can enter. It is outbound only. Going from secured to general public
I have friends who live in NHampshire. There is no state income tax, no sales tax. But they surely do try to make it up with property taxes.
Here in CNY we have high property taxes but they make up for it with high state income tax.
Syverud to provide updates to campus community in address
Chancellor Kent Syverud will speak at 4 p.m. in the Milton Atrium in the Life Sciences Complex.

Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud will give an address on Tuesday afternoon to the campus community inside the Milton Atrium in the Life Sciences Complex.
During his speech, Syverud will reflect on recent issues and accomplishments at the university in addition to providing updates on different university initiatives, according to an SU News release.
The speech will essentially serve as a State of the University address, something that used to formally exist at SU. Former Chancellor Kenneth “Buzz” Shaw gave the address annually during his time as chancellor to provide updates on university initiatives. The address stopped being held sometime during former Chancellor Nancy Cantor’s tenure.
Syverud took over as SU’s chancellor in January 2014. At the heart of his tenure thus far has been Fast Forward Syracuse, his three-pronged initiative aimed at advancing both the university’s academics and its physical appearance.
Syverud’s speech on Tuesday will begin at 4 p.m.
If he doesn't mention the dome, that's bad news.
It ought to be, given the flights are among the most expensive in the country.
Speaking of dumb ideas and wasting tax payer money...how about the "rain water recovery system" designated as part of the new airport roof? Great idea for a city with less annual days of sunlight than Seattle.
Apologize RMH if I am reading your meaning incorrectly, but I am confused why saving resources is a bad idea, especially in a city with annual snowfall and as you said many gloomy days? Wouldn't that be a positive enhancement?
It's unnecessary in our area. We get tons (literally) of precipitation every month that naturally finds it's way back into the water cycle.
Many of my college projects were centered around this and other (i.e. deforestation, desertification etc) ecological issues so I get it. My point is simple, if this was proposed in Denver or Dallas or Phoenix I think it would be a great idea and money well spent. But when you live in an area that gets more than enough precip and within 40 miles of 20-25% of all the world's fresh water, I think the rain water recycling roof project is nothing more than PC run amuck. Just my opinion and probably should have been saved for the OT board ;-)
Any day now for Dome reno news...right?
I'm sure that many posters here have better sources/intel than I do...but I've heard that the Dome renovations plans might be pared back due to financial concerns. Completing the revisions might be the hold-up?
No I respect your opinion absolutely. In my very limited knowledge, I read resources saved and I think it's a win, but perhaps, it's not all it's made to be, which is certainly possible. Definitely something that can be spun as positive PR. I also understand having these systems in place in dryer climates has more impact.
