February 23, 2017. Schoharie, NY. Schoharie Area Long Term (SALT Development), a non-profit based in Schoharie County, NY, is coordinating an exciting community development project – the Schoharie Creek Trail Feasibility Study. This Feasibility Study will analyze the legal, economic, and environmental feasibility of a 38- mile multi-use recreational trail connecting communities from Esperance to Blenheim. SALT is working closely with the Schoharie County Community Development Agency, as well as regional stakeholders to leverage the resources needed to study the development of a trail running along the Schoharie Creek. The Study is slated to be completed by the end of 2017!

SALT Development is committed to working with local clubs and organizations to ensure that this Study includes the wants and needs of our region. We recently attended Schoharie County’s All County Snowmobile Club meeting after being invited to speak by the New York State Snowmobile Association (NYSSA) Schoharie County Director, Glenn Hayton, who also serves on our Trail Study Project Advisory Committee. We spoke with snowmobile club members and members of the Schoharie County Sheriff’s Office including Sheriff Tony Desmond, about the current challenges they are facing and potential solutions. As members of a snowmobile club and community members themselves, they gave advice on landowner outreach and concerns that landowners may have that we should address. The group also helped SALT kick-off the Schoharie Creek Trail Study GoFundMe (www.gofundme.com/trailstudy) campaign by donating that day.

NYSSA will also be sharing the GoFundMe campaign on its website and social media accounts. SALT is seeking donations to cover the expenses and match requirements for project and volunteer coordination to ensure the Study is completed by 2017.
Would your group like to help support this study? Please contact Jin Kim at 518-702-5017 or jink@saltdevelopment.org for more information.
