Wall Street Journal Article
Associated Press
CATSKILL, N.Y. — A Hudson River village 100 miles north of New York City has landed a chef through an innovative ad campaign that offered space on Main Street rent free for a year. The hope is that the right restaurant will create a buzz among foodies and help the village of Catskill accelerate the kind of gentrification that has revived other river towns. Andrea Lowenthal of High Falls Holding announced Saturday that chef Jamie Parry has signed a lease for the site of the historic Mayflower cafe. Parry is founder and chef of Another Fork in the Road, a New American restaurant focusing on locally-grown food in Red Hook, 15 miles south of Catskill. He has also served stints at Montrachet in New York City and Swoon in Hudson.
Thank you NINA !!!


 


 

CULTIVATE CATSKILL
BRICK FUNDRAISER


THIS FUNDRAISER HAS BEEN EXTENDED!!!

Cultivate Catskill has decided to run a second round of our brick fundraiser, as our first round was so popular. Our designer has altered his plans for the Howard Street Slide so that we can accommodate additional brick orders. We will run this second round from September 2013 through July 2014.

Please don't delay if you want to order one, as we only have 68 bricks left to sell!

We are a group of volunteers who are trying to make Catskill look nicer by planting trees, flowers, bushes, etc. where they are needed. We're starting with the slides on Main Street and the Main Street area in general. Personalized bricks are a wonderful way to honor members of your family or loved ones who are gone. It's also a great way to celebrate special milestones, such as births, weddings, and graduations. Businesses who buy bricks will have unlimited advertising for years to come.

The bricks will be installed at the base of the Howard St. slide, coming down from the library. (The first round of bricks is being shipped and will be installed in the next few weeks.) You can have your brick engraved with whatever you would like it to say, 3 lines per brick, 14 characters per line. Please click on a link for more details, to purchase a brick, or to go to the

Cultivate Catskill website. http://cultivatecatskill.donationbricks.com/ (for bricks) http://cultivatecatskill.wordpress.com/how-to-help/ (Cultivate Catskill website)

PROJECT UPDATE

CATSKILL BROWNFIELD OPPORTUNITY AREA
NOMINATION STUDY

The Village of Catskill, in partnership with the Greene County Industrial Development Agency (IDA), is engaged in a New York State Department of State (NYSDOS) Brownfield Opportunity Area Program (BOA) grant to examine the reuse of underutilized and vacant properties located within the Village. The Catskill Brownfield Opportunity Area Nomination Study (Catskill BOA) will include a multi- disciplinary, comprehensive approach to brownfield redevelopment based on sound planning principles, environmental analysis, and economic and real estate analysis.

The BOA program will enable Catskill to identify strategic opportunities to return dormant or underutilized areas back to productive use while restoring environmental quality and will examine economic market trends and environmental constraints.

The Catskill BOA is a locally- driven study being undertaken by the Village as it strives to restore economic vitality and to maintain the environmental integrity of the greater Catskill community.

The outcomes of Catskill BOA are anticipated to be:

A comprehensive land use assessment and analysis
An economic and market trends analysis of regional and local forces
Identification and description of all brownfield sites with an emphasis on the reuse and redevelopment potentia
Recommendations for future uses and actions to redevelop strategic sites and revitalize the study area

A "LOVELY" BOUTIQUE
A "LOVELY" BOUTIQUE OPENS ON
MAIN STREET IN CATSKILL, NY


Lovely, a new boutique on Main Street, opened its doors Memorial Day weekend. The husband and wife team of Liz and Dan Kirkhus have worked to create a fresh and unique shopping experience in the heart of the Village.
The storefront offers a collection of wares from independent regional and local designers, artists and craftsman. Items ranging from men's and women's accessories to home goods and art adorn the interior of the duplex space. Works from Catskill's Lucy Blaire (oil cloth travel and makeup bags) and Meryl Lernihan (etchings and oil paintings) are featured in the shop. Christine Domanic, based in Hudson, offers her whimsical line of earrings and necklaces. Lovely is also proud to carry Beekman 1802 a brand of handmade goat milk soaps, lotions and fine edibles straight from the farm of the "The Fabulous Beekman Boys" in Sharon Springs, NY.
Customers who wish to know more about Lovely's products and the inspiration behind them can read the artist biographies which are prominently displayed near their wares. Currently in development, www.LovelyCatskill.com will offer even more artist information and an online shop. Lovely will be hosting designer showcases and art openings throughout the year.
Lovely is open daily from 10:00am - 6:00pm, Sunday 11:00am - 5:00pm and closed Tuesday.

Project90
The Catskill Local Development Corporation (CLDC) has launched an initiative called "Project 90"

We have rented retail space on Main Street and have opened it up to artisans and craft vendors as an entry level arena for testing their products and services in a retail setting.

The project will last 90 days and its primary goal is to foster new businesses to take hold of retail space on Main Street.

We are currently interviewing vendors for the first wave of this project. Interested individuals can contact Tina at Mahalo or email us at project90@welcometocatskill.com.

Special thanks to Nina Sklansky for her creativity on the brand theme as well as the project and store names. I will be posting a few mock ups of the proposed marketing materials on http://www.welcometocatskill.com/project90 .

Please help us spread the word on this important project.
