On Thursday, March 6, at 7 p.m., Scenic Hudson and The Palisades Interstate Park Commission (PIPC) will hold a community meeting at the Highland Fire Station to discuss plans for Franny Reese Preserve State Park, a new public park that will be created in the Town of Lloyd.

The 250-acre woodland preserve honors the memory of Frances "Franny" Reese, a Scenic Hudson founder and internationally recognized leader of the modern environmental movement. At the March 6 meeting, Scenic Hudson and PIPC will share preliminary plans for the park along with maps of the property that detail existing trails, views and natural and historic features.

Anyone attending the meeting will be invited to share their ideas for how the park can best serve the community.

WHAT: Community Meeting about Franny Reese Preserve State Park

WHEN: Thursday, March 6, at 7 p.m.

WHERE: Highland Fire Station at 25 Milton Ave./Route 44-55, just off Route 9W.

I hope you can come to this meeting and participate in our plans to transform this beautiful piece of property into a park that will allow the public to enjoy the beauty of the Hudson River for generations to come.

Mike, there are examples of disrepair within our own city parks. As the number of residents and visitors increases, so does our park use.

The Ward Nine social group wants to manage a land trust, so why not get to work on Clearwater Park? You've been reminding the Rec Dept about that abandoned park for years.

Its nice that were aware of Lloyds parks dilemma, but the maintenence of our own are a bigger issue.
