Funds Appropriated to Help Protect Danby Parcel

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

The Legislature approved the appropriation of $6,500 from the Capital Reserve Fund for Natural, Scenic, and Recreational Resource Protection to support the acquisition of a 144-acre parcel on Heisey Road in Danby by the Finger Lakes Land Trust. The property, located in the Forest Lands Natural Features Focus Area and is identified as a Priority Protection Area in the Tompkins County Conservation Strategy.

The acquisition by the Land Trust will allow the parcel to connect with other public lands, and will secure a section of the Finger Lakes Trail. The approval vote was 13-1, Legislator Dooley Kiefer dissenting, saying that while she supports the initative, paperwork was deficient since it did not bear signatures.
