Middleburgh among the top 5 most desired places to live
Middleburgh was just rated among the top five most desired places to live for young people in the Capital Region by the Albany Business Review this month (see the image below)! At SALT we know Schoharie County is a great place to live and we’re glad that the rest of the Capital Region is finally taking notice.
We also know that, trails, like the one we are studying the development of, provide many regional benefits and will also help to attract both tourists and future residents to the area. This USDA Factsheet on trails states, “studies are confirming that trails and green space are important community assets that can help spur economic development. From urban home buyers preferring to live along or near a trail to bicyclists and hikers making their way from town to town in a rural area, trails attract people and dollars.”
More information will be coming soon on our progress with the Trail Feasibility Study, but for now we need your help to determine trail use and the demographics of trail users. Please take a few minutes to fill out our survey online here: https://www.saltdevelopment.org/trailsurvey/
