William J. Kemble reports in the Daily Freeman that the Saugerties Town Board has set up a committee to make Bristol Beach a recreation attraction. The group will mostly work to secure funding to develop the site along the Hudson River in Malden into an actual beach. Saugerties officials hope Bristol Beach will include river access for the public, with a picnic area, parking for 12 vehicles, restrooms, trails, a bath house, and a fishing area. So far, Lanny Walter and Mike Harkavy, both already on the town board, are on the committee. Other appointments will be made at future town board meetings. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
