Matt Smith: Hudson Valley Hero

Monday, May 21, 2007 -- admin

Astonished that the Town of Lloyd, Ulster County, where he lives, is the only community along the Hudson that doesn’t offer residents a place to connect with the river, Matt Smith did something about it. He spearheaded a 14-year campaign to create Highland Landing Park. Soon his dream will be realized. With Scenic Hudson’s help, the town is purchasing a former riverside fuel terminal. When complete, the 1.7-acre park will feature a riverwalk, a boat launch, an education center and space to fish and picnic.
