LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY (June 21, 2015) – The Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce invites local residents and business owners to a community workshop on Wednesday, June 24 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Livingston Manor Fire House.
The focus will be a community project identified as a priority during “visioning” sessions held in 2013; creating a more walkable community including a river walk along the Willowemoc Creek (photo left by Donald B. Siano.)
Through a cost-sharing arrangement between the Sullivan County Funding Corporation and local businesses, the Livingston Manor Chamber is working with Hart Howerton, a global design and planning firm, to prepare preliminary design concepts for the project and assist in applying for grant funding through the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process.
At the workshop, residents and second homeowners will hear more about possible grant sources and preview preliminary design concepts for the river walk, with an opportunity to ask questions, share design ideas, and express concerns. This feedback is an important part of the process and will be useful in securing grant funding.
The workshop, sponsored by the Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce, with support from the Town of Rockland, will be facilitated by staff from Sullivan Renaissance, the Sullivan County Division of Planning, and Hart Howerton. “We are excited about the opportunity” said Chamber President Lisa Lyons, “but we need feedback and ideas from the community at this early stage.”
