The Utica Economy
The traditional Utica economy prospered with industries like furniture, textiles and lumber. As the need for these industries declined, Utica struggled to find its footing, but may finally be rebounding thanks to the Griffiss Air Force Base technology center in Rome, a variety of construction projects, the healthcare industry, logistics, industrial services and the nearby Turning Stone Resort & Casino.
