last meeting of the year of the Montezuma Heritage Design Committee (HPDC) will be
held Thursday, December 29th at 7 PM in the Town Hall. We welcome community
residents to attend.
At this meeting we will be reviewing proposals for
conceptual design services to develop the park. This planning project is partially funded through a grant received from the Environmental Protection Fund administered by New York Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. We also will be setting
three main goals for the coming year as we partner with the Rivers,
Trails, Conservation Assistance and Parks and Trails, New York Creating
Healthy Trails, Healthy Places Program to assist us in putting together an Action Plan.
