SUNY Albany Students are on the Trail!
SALT is lucky to be collaborating with an Urban and Regional Planning class at SUNY Albany on our Trail Project, working on GIS and public outreach. Some students from the class came to visit to get a feel for SALT and Schoharie County, sitting with SALT VISTA Jin Kim, for an energetic and productive meeting. We had a chance to ask them what excited them about the Trail Project and what they were looking forward to!
I see the Trail Study as an opportunity for Schoharie Valley residents to plan for a facility that connects the cultural and natural assets of their communities. I look forward to contributing to a project that enhances health, environmentally-friendly transportation, economic development, recreation, and access along the creek for residents and visitors alike.
For me, the Trail Study is a unique way for residents of the Schoharie Valley to continue to show their resiliency by looking towards the future. The trail could prove to be a valuable asset that highlights the natural, economic, and cultural treasures found throughout the area in a sustainable way. I look forward to connecting with the community residents and working with them to develop this project to its fullest potential.
I feel that the Trail Study is a way to provide the residents of the Schoharie with a piece of infrastructure that will build communities, grow economies and provide a wonderful source of leisure allowing for people to get in touch with he great outdoors. The Schoharie Valley is one of the most beautiful parts of the state and I feel that this project will showcase it to the Schoharie residents and those from near and far.
