MARLBOROUGH – Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) joined Town of Marlborough Supervisor Al Lanzetta, Assemblyman Jonathan Jacobson, and other officials on Monday to tout $560,027 in Local Waterfront Revitalization Program funds awarded to the town which will enable completion of the Lower Milton Landing revitalization project.

This state funding, along with a previously announced $40,000 state grant to support construction of an ADA-compliant kayak launch on the property and $43,500 in private funds from the Milton Train Station Foundation, represents the final leg of a years’ long revitalization effort on the part of Lanzetta and the town. Upgrades will include a welcome plaza, signage, bus drop-off, pathways, benches, and more to improve access and accessibility for locals and visitors alike.

“This is a transformative amount of money for a community like the Town of Marlborough,” said Senator Skoufis. “By enhancing this historically underutilized waterfront, the town will be able to connect its community to its natural and recreational resources, and will spur much-needed economic development in the area. This is going to be the gem of Marlborough when all is said and done.”

“A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline,” said Town of Marlborough Supervisor Al Lanzetta. “Thanks to the persistence of the community, as represented by its officials and volunteers, we have achieved the goal of offering the public a beautiful park on the Hudson River for recreation, education and economic development.”

As Lanzetta leaves office later this month, incoming Supervisor Scott Corcoran will be responsible for moving the project forward.
