LIVINGSTON MANOR VISIONING CONTINUES

Over 75 Residents Are Helping Plan the Future of the Hamlet

January 28, 2013

[LIVINGSTON MANOR] – Livingston Manor residents will continue to shape the future of their hamlet at a special workshop this Thursday, January 31 at 7:00 p.m. in the Livingston Manor Presbyterian Church.  The public is invited – and individuals do not need to have attended the first workshop.

Indeed, more than 75 residents turned out last week for the first of two “community visioning workshops” organized by Livingston Manor Renaissance and the Livingston Manor Chamber of Commerce, with help from Sullivan Renaissance. 

The evening started with everyone introducing themselves and talking about what they like about their community, and what they would like to see changed.  Among the qualities that residents appreciate are Livingston Manor’s small town feel, location within the Catskill Mountains, and the strong community spirit.  At the same time, many people lamented the recent loss of businesses, and wanted to see more job opportunities, community activities, and a larger library.

The standing room only crowd then split up into work groups to identify Livingston Manor’s strengths and weaknesses in four specific areas: Community Appearance; Business Development and Tourism; Infrastructure and Community Facilities; and Recreation and Social Issues. 

At the next workshop this Thursday, residents will generate ideas for specific projects that build on the information generated during the first session.  At the end of the second workshop, participants will vote on projects they would most like to see implemented.

At a subsequent meeting on February 11, Sullivan Renaissance will work with the steering committee and local officials to select a handful of projects to start immediately, and help identify potential funding sources.

For more information on this project contact Marge Feuerstein of Livingston Manor Renaissance at 845-439-5519 or Helen Budrock of Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2462.
