TUPPER LAKE - Syracuse University students who have been putting together plans for the reuse of the former Oval Wood Dish plant have set a presentation date.
Industrial design students led by Don Carr, a Syracuse professor who has a summer camp in Long Lake, have been putting together plans for the 100,000-square-feet former factory. It has been largely empty since 2008, when Jarden Plastics shut down operations there.
Students will compete with their plans to win Syracuse University's annual 360 Competition, which encourages design students to approach a problem from all sides.
They are set to present their plans at 6 p.m Wednesday, Dec. 12, at The Wild Center nature museum. All are welcome to attend.
Village Trustee Rick Donah, who has been keeping the village board up to date on the contest, told the board Monday that one of the reuse plans will involve a brewery.
Carr brought the students to Tupper Lake to see the facility in September, and some have visited again since then.
