Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, in his State of the County address this week, noted the recent success of the IIHF Women’s World Championship in Utica.

Picente said more tickets were sold than any of the previous women’s world championships, and said he is looking ahead to the World Lacrosse Box Championships in September.

Picente said it’s time to reinvigorate Fort Stanwix National Monument with new programming and more events. He also wants to create a plan to redevelop the area around it, blending history, entertainment and other opportunities.

Picente also said he will take executive action to place cameras in as many high-crime and high-traffic areas as possible. It will come with a commitment of $2.5 million.

He hopes to create a four-year, $10 million fund to address youth violence, using the money to fund after-school programs; mentoring and job opportunities; programs like sports leagues and art classes; and a new gang assessment study.
