Olana proposes new welcome center

Jun 03, 2022 12:54 pm

Emilia Teasdale reports for the Columbia Paper that the proposed $11 million visitor welcome facility at Olana State Historic Site is currently in the State Environmental Quality Review Act process, and was unveiled to the public at a virtual meeting recently. “No red flags that have been raised so far” in the SEQR document, said Linda Cooper, regional director of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The new visitor entry and orientation facility, if approved, will be off Route 9G, and would include a 45-spot parking lot, bathrooms, and a cafe. About three-and-a-half acres of trees would be cleared for the 4,500 square feet building. The building will be made from sustainable materials, is all electric, and carbon neutral with an Electric Car charging station. Read more about this story in the Columbia Paper.
