BEACON – At the Greater Southern Dutchess Chamber of Commerce breakfast on Sept. 5, Scenic Hudson saluted State Sen. Steve Saland for ongoing support of revitalizing Beacon's waterfront and its connections to the Main Street business district. The breakfast meeting was held at Long Dock Beacon, the 25-acre waterfront site where Scenic Hudson is seeking to turn a pollution-scarred parcel into a world-class "green" hotel/conference center and park with numerous public amenities.
BEACON – Through a deal spearheaded by Scenic Hudson, the City of Beacon can become the owner of a beautiful 50-acre property with an Olympic-size swimming pool, theater, gym and other impressive amenities – for only $550,000. The arrangement also would prevent the historic wooded property, with legendary Mount Beacon as its backdrop, from being lost to inappropriate development.
Scenic Hudson's first-ever parks festival on Saturday, Aug. 25 was a big success, drawing over 200 people to three of our parks for a day of food, fun and music. Thanks to everyone who participated.
