Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee


The Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee was launched in early 2023 to bring together stakeholders and interested members of the public from across Oswego County and beyond to discuss and plan for Oswego County’s role in contributing to this historic opportunity in New York State—Micron’s planned investment of $100 billion in the region over the next twenty years.

Micron’s megafab chip plant, located just over Oswego County’s border in Clay, NY, is a catalyst for transformational renewal in the Central New York region and across New York State. As Oswego County’s only public comprehensive university and as an economic driver for the state, SUNY Oswego is proud to serve as the lead convener of the Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee.

Oswego County Micron Strategy Steering Committee members invite you to contribute to shaping Oswego County’s future through conversation with Steering Committee members, work group participation, and/or participating in upcoming public forums as we imagine and take action together to illuminate, utilize, and strengthen Oswego County’s assets and improve upon areas in need of attention and resources.
