RLT is pleased to invite you to join us at one of our three upcoming presentations on our new Land Conservation Plan and Hudson River Access Plan. Many of you have provided valuable input to one or both of these plans and we are pleased to share what we've learned and describe how we intend to use these plans in the future. RLT Executive Director John Winter will speak on the land conservation plan and Jim Levy of Planning4Places will present on the Hudson River Access Plan. We have set aside an hour to present both plans.

Three presentations across Rensselaer County for your convenience:

Western part of the County – Hudson River shoreline communities [Town of Schaghticoke, City of Troy, Town of North Greenbush, City of Rensselaer, Town of East Greenbush, Town of Schodack, and Village of Castleton-on-Hudson]: Wednesday, September 19 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm at the East Greenbush Public Library, located at 10 Community Way in East Greenbush, New York, 12061. Adam Yagelski, Director of Planning and Zoning for the Town of East Greenbush will be our host.

Northern part of the County [Towns of Brunswick, Grafton, Hoosick (and the Village of Hoosick Falls), Petersburgh, Pittstown, and the Village of Valley Falls]: Wednesday, September 26 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at the Valley Falls Community Hall, which is located at 11 Charles Street in Valley Falls, New York 12185. Dick Andrew, Mayor of Valley Falls, will be our host.

Central and southern parts of the County [Towns of Berlin, Nassau and the Villages of Nassau and East Nassau), Poestenkill, Sand Lake, and Stephentown]: Thursday, September 27 from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at the Nassau Town Hall, which is located at 29 Church St in Nassau, New York, 12123. David Fleming, Town of Nassau Supervisor will be our host.

Here's a brief description of the two plans:

2018 to 2030 Land Conservation Plan: Designed as a “greenprint” of land conservation priorities in Rensselaer County, the RLT Land Conservation Plan identifies and maps the natural resources that RLT and its partners are looking to conserve. The Plan is the first comprehensive study of this kind for the entire county, and was prepared in collaboration with public and private partners and stakeholders. The Plan also identifies key conservation priorities in each municipality in the County.

Hudson River Access Plan: This plan identifies places along the Hudson River waterfront where residents and visitors can access the water. It was prepared using information on existing conditions at 44 sites and provides recommendations for improved access along the entire Rensselaer County waterfront. When implemented, with direct involvement of each river community, Rensselaer County will have a significantly more accessible waterfront. 

We hope you can join us and we welcome you to invite your friends and colleagues to attend.
