The State Senate on Wednesday approved a measure by Sen. Patty Ritchie, R-Heuvelton, that would transfer to the City of Ogdensburg 50 acres of St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center waterfront property. Ritchie says the bill would "open a large swath of St. Lawrence County riverfront to new housing and development, revitalizing the North Country economy with new jobs, and strengthening the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center's mission to help those suffering mental illness lead fuller and more successful lives."
