Esplanade plan to be considered at special town meeting

The Town of Tusten’s Big Eddy Esplanade Selection Committe has picked Chazen Companies from the four companies that submitted bids for a contract to draw up an engineering plan for the project. However, at its last meeting the Tusten town board postponed a vote on the matter, pending among other things a determination as to whether the property owners on Main Street, who need to grant rights of way, will still sign off on the esplanade.
A public meeting will be held on the matter on Monday, February 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Tusten Town Hall on Bridge Street.

Ironically, the same products that can harm plant, animal and human life are also the ones that increase human safety when it comes to driving during ice and snow events.  Read more

Upper Delaware Scenic Byway Visitor Center to feature roof with a view

If and when it is built, it will have a sloping roof that will provide visitors with a good view of Fort Delaware and the Upper Delaware River below. The proposed design of the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway (UDSB) Visitor Center was unveiled at a meeting in Narrowsburg on January 23.

Along with the specialized roof, which will be made of recycled rubber pavers to handle the foot traffic, the 2,400-square-foot building will have a gallery, a multi-use space to be used as a theater or classroom, two offices for the UDSB and Fort Delaware, a gift shop, a warming kitchen and public restrooms.  Read more
