Gov. Cuomo’s executive budget released last month includes positive news for New York’s parks and the environment.
The budget includes $89 million for infrastructure improvements at 48 state parks and historic sites as part of the New York Works fund. Details about which park projects will see improvements are just emerging. See the list of Hudson Valley projects.
The Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) holds steady at $134 million, with $16 million slated for state land stewardship and $13,000 for municipal parks.
Thank the Governor for making a smart investment in New York State by providing funding for infrastructure needs at state parks and historic sites and supporting the EPF.
