Town of New Paltz to conduct community survey on open space and historic preservation

The Town of New Paltz is conducting a community survey to determine what New Paltz residents consider as open space and historic preservation priorities for the community in the future. The survey is designed to explore protection of the community’s open spaces, recreational assets, habitats, farmland and historic features. It is the first step in updating the Town’s Open Space Plan, written in 2006, and integrating it with its inventory of historic landmarks and features.

The Lo Farm gears up to take over CSA at Taliaferro’s

The Lo Farm gears up to take over CSA at Taliaferro’s

For more than 20 years, a 32-acre tract of alluvial land on the banks of the Wallkill River on Plains Road in New Paltz was maintained as a CSA by Sylvester (“Pete”) and Robin Taliaferro. Despite all their years of hard work, the Taliaferros never quite recovered from the financial setbacks caused by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee in 2011. By 2018, the handwriting was on the wall: It was time to find a new tenant to lease the farm and retire. That search has now ended.
