KEENE - The Town of Wilmington, in cooperation with the High Peaks communities is developing a regional strategy for community revitalization, sustainable economic development, enhanced public access and promotion of the High Peaks waterfronts as an important resource for recreation and tourism. The project is funded by a grant from the NYS Department of State through the Environmental Protection Fund and financial support from the participating communities.
As part of the project, community workshops will be held in the towns of Keene, Jay, Wilmington, and North Elba. The meetings will provide an introduction to the planning process and allow participants to discuss possible implementation projects in large and small group discussions.
Upcoming meetings are scheduled for Oct. 19, 7 p.m. at the Town of Keene Community Center on Church Street, and Oct. 20, 7 p.m., at the Town of Jay Community Center gymnasium. For more information, contact Melissa McManus, Project Coordinator at 297-6753.
