He said $7 million would go to streetscape improvements from the State Fair to the lakefront, $3 million for the Onondaga Creekwalk and $1.5 million for water taxis. Funding would include federal and local money, including a portion of Oneida casino payments.

A court-ordered, $450 million cleanup continues for Onondaga Lake, once deemed one of the nation's most polluted waterways.
