Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Alliance Banks announced in October of 2012 that it has been acquired by a Norwich-based chain, but the transition became official as all of the locations in the Syracuse area became NBT banks today.
While the banks were donning the new identity, the Alliance name hadn’t completely left the Salt City. Signs directing people to Alliance Bank Stadium will still be around for several weeks.
Either Onondaga County or NBT must request a signage change through New York State to put up new signs for the new owners.
"They'll have to get a highway work permit. They'll have to let us know what kind of lane closures are needed, what exactly is going to be going on, where it is going, the time it's going to be effecting traffic," Cilento said.
The biggest question right now is what happens to the baseball stadium, which is still known as Alliance Bank Stadium.
Well the county, which owns the park, and NBT, the new bank, have not indicated how the signage would change.
They said an announcement could come midweek.
The party requesting the change must pay for it. Neither the state nor the city has offered any formal request for a sign change.
