The Daily Freeman reports that the Hudson River Greenway program has been extended until 2022, according to Assemblyperson Kevin Cahill. First created in 1991, the program is meant to develop a regional strategy for preserving scenic, natural, historic, cultural, and recreational resources while encouraging economic development along the river. New Baltimore is the only local community along the Hudson River now part of the Greenway program. The program also provides grants for communities, and locals in June received $7,500 to complete and implement a comprehensive plan in Chatham and $10,000 for Ghent to hire a consultant to audit its recently revised Commercial Zoning Code.
