Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Some members of the Binghamton community got a glimpse into the future of downtown with the final presentation of Blueprint Binghamton.

Blueprint Binghamton ended Thursday night with a final presentation of possible new zoning laws for the Main Street - Court Street Corridor.

Code Studio, a company out of Austin, Texas, worked with Third Coast Design Studio from Tennessee.

Their ideas include more landscaping, increased residential areas up and down Court and Main Streets, and adjusting lanes to help create a stronger and financially brighter community.

"If you look at the fabulous buildings that are here in Binghamton, they'll be here another 100 years from now, and we need to treat the rest of the area the same way," said Lee Einsweiler from Code Studios.

Code Studio has been collecting ideas from residents and neighbors since Saturday.

Now, Code Studio will give their preliminary designs to the city of Binghamton, in hopes the city will use their hard work as suggestions for the future.
