Tague Bill Adopts Durham Valley Scenic Byway Into NYS Scenic Byway Systems

Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C-Schoharie) today congratulated local officials as the Durham Valley Scenic Byway in Greene County was designated as part of the New York State Scenic Byways System. Scenic byways have shown to provide important benefits to the communities through which they pass, including generating significant economic activity through tourism, more careful environmental stewardship of the byway corridor, improved traveler and community services and the potential to access federal grants to develop the byway.

“I am incredibly grateful that beautiful Green County is being recognized. I have always said Greene County is one of the most beautiful places in our state, if not the nation, so I am happy Sen. Hinchey was able to partner with me on a bill signed into law by the governor. I want to thank Sen. Hinchey, members of the local Durham Valley Scenic Byway Committee, the Department of Transportation and members of our town and county governments for helping me get this bill across the finish line and their dedication to showing New Yorkers why Greene County is such a great place to visit,” said Tague.
