Support Parks and Parkland
Securing grants and shaping policy to improve our community
December 21, 2020
Greenspace plays an important role in providing a healthy environment. It also serves as a place for people to recharge and get inspired by the beauty and importance of nature.
I’ve supported using the DRI grant to improve our public spaces and helped secure a grant for the City of Hudson to fund the creation of a tree inventory and tree management plan. I also supported funding for the Corkscrew Rail Trail. I also facilitated a grant for a bike fix-it station at Oakdale Park.
Much of our parkland and greenspace is adjacent to the Hudson River. I have called for access to the Hudson River, increasing EPA Funding for a clean river, and demanding the EPA do a better job enforcing existing laws for a clean river.
Access to Parks
When kids playing soccer were kicked out of the waterfront park, I led an effort to ensure fair use of parks. I also secured a grant for crosswalks to Oakdale, making it easier for pedestrians to get there.
