Capital Funds Appropriated to Assist in Acquiring Six Mile Creek/Midline Road Property

Tuesday, March 1, 2016

The Legislature, by unanimous vote (Legislator Dan Klein was excused) appropriated $25,000 from the County’s Capital Reserve Fund for Natural, Scenic, and Recreational Resource Protection, to provide partial financial support to the Finger Lakes Land Trust toward acquiring 125 acres along Six Mile Creek and Midline Road in the Town of Dryden. The acquisition is intended to protect the Six Mile Creek corridor, connect important adjacent public and private open space resources, and improve public access to recreation resources. Located in the Forest Lands Natural Features Focus Area, as designated in the County’s Comprehensive Plan, the property is included in a Priority Protection Area in the Tompkins County Conservation Strategy. Legislator Carol Chock thanked staff for working on this proposal, calling it a “model application.”
