Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Several neighborhood groups interested in developing Binghamton's Westside met with City leaders Wednesday.

Interested parties include members of the West Side Neighborhood Project, the Broome County Landlords Association, BU Off Campus College Office and City of Binghamton Staff.

They're all working together to implement several recommendations from the City Commission on Housing and Home Ownership such as developing a rental registration program, creating co-tenancy dwelling units and making an urban village where many unrelated people can work and live together.

There will be a public hearing concerning the proposals on May 1st at Binghamton City Hall.
