Pleased by initiative

Dear Editor,

The towns of Long Lake and North Hudson, two of the five towns that have joined together as the Upper Hudson Recreation Hub and located in both Essex and Hamilton counties, are pleased to learn of Governor Andrew Cuomo's new initiative to grow upstate tourism by opening nearly 50 state properties for recreational activities.

Access to these lands will provide increased recreational opportunities in our communities, benefiting residents, visitors and sportsmen / women alike, increasing the number of visitors to our towns, generating additional tourism revenue, and thereby boosting our local economies.
