Establish a world-class destination
The LA Group assisted the Historic Hudson-Hoosic Rivers Partnership in the development of the Stewardship Plan for the fifteen communities within the Partnership Area along the Hudson River. The Stewardship Plan is a framework of strategies that is implementing a long-term vision for the 35-mile linear corridor along the Hudson River from Waterford to Fort Edward.
Key tasks included an inventory and analysis of existing local, regional, and statewide planning documents, an economic plan, education program, municipal cost sharing opportunities, financial plan, and an implementation strategy.
The Stewardship Plan is being used by the Partnership to access future funding sources, provide capital funding to municipal projects that provide significant community benefits, promote recreational, heritage, and agritourism, and develop stronger partnerships with local and regional organizations.
