Corning Planned Parenthood Expanding:
Work is on-schedule for a $2.3 million expansion of Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes Inc. in Corning.

According to City Manager Mark Ryckman the work is expected to be completed in the summer. Once the project is complete, Planned Parenthood will move from its current location on Walnut Street to the new site.
