HUDSON VALLEY—Scenic Hudson commends Ulster County Executive Mike Hein for his recent statement opposing the Glidepath/Lincoln Park gas-fired power plant proposal in the Town of Ulster. Scenic Hudson shares the county’s opposition to this project—or any fossil fuel infrastructure project in this location—and its concern about misaligned state and federal policies that promote the siting of polluting power plants in the Hudson Valley. The county executive’s statement is the latest in a series of strong environmental and renewable energy actions taken by the county.

EAST FISHKILL (Dutchess County)—Fishkill Farms already is one of Dutchess County’s most productive and popular farm operations, supplying dozens of varieties of fruits and vegetables to consumers throughout the Hudson Valley and New York City. Scenic Hudson has partnered with a private equity “impact” investor in farmland conservation to preserve 105 acres with high-quality soils adjacent to the farm—providing its owner with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to expand.
