In follow up to New York State’s announcement that it will not proceed with an environmental bond act in 2020, Scenic Hudson issued the following statement regarding its 520-acre property on the City of Kingston and Town of Ulster waterfront:
“Scenic Hudson looks forward to continuing our dialogue with residents and stakeholders in the City of Kingston and Town of Ulster to envision a future for the park that maximizes its benefits to local communities and the region. This engagement process began very successfully last Wednesday when more than 200 people joined us for a virtual tour and discussion. We are very encouraged by the turnout and participants’ excitement about the project.
“We protected this land because of its enormous potential to connect people to the inspiring power of nature and the Hudson River. We and our partners remain committed to achieving our shared vision for this special place. It will be an outstanding asset for surrounding communities and the entire Hudson Valley.”
