Hochul signs bill designating Durham Valley Scenic Byway

Aug 26, 2022 1:04 pm

Liz Montgomery in Porcupine Soup reports that Gov. Kathy Hochul has signed the bill to designate the Durham Valley Scenic Byway in Greene County as part of the New York State Scenic Byways System. Democrat Senator Michelle Hinchey and Republican Assemblyperson Chris Tague sponsored the bill to designate 21 miles of roads in the Towns of Durham and Windham. “Our bill granting this Scenic Byway designation to the Durham Valley is a victory for Greene County,” said Hinchey. “We have elevated twenty-one miles of picturesque viewshed across Durham and Windham as a local landmark, which will provide an economic boost to Greene County businesses, enhance preservation efforts, and help promote our rural communities as can’t-miss destinations for tourism, culture, and commerce.” The scenic byway includes the five-state view where onlookers can see New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. The designation allows local governments to apply for grants to upgrade the scenic byway. Read more about this story in Porcupine Soup.
