WELCOME TO OSWEGO, NY

As Mayor of the City of Oswego, it is my esteemed pleasure to welcome you to our community and I encourage you to explore all that our City has to offer.   On behalf of all City residents, I invite you to experience all the unique assets within our community as we continue to transform Oswego into a place where both residents and visitors can live, work and play!

Currently in the City of Oswego, we are changing as a community.  We have experienced a resurgence in our downtown as new restaurants and small businesses occupy our storefronts, creating a vibrant and lively ambience.  In addition, our events throughout the summer truly make Oswego an interesting place to visit at any given time.  From our weekly downtown Farmers' Markets, to our unique assets like the Oswego Speedway and Fort Ontario, and our annual city-wide celebration known as Harborfest, we are a regional destination with plenty to enjoy!

Moving forward, we are ambitiously working to revitalize our historic neighborhoods and enhance the natural assets our community has.  We are beginning to capitalize on our world class Lake Ontario waterfront and take advantage of our prime location along the Oswego River.  The City of Oswego has a bit of everything to offer as we continue to grow and transform into a 21st Century Community all while embracing our rich, cultural history. Welcome to our community, we look forward to having you!

My Best,

Mayor William J. Barlow
