Much needed life


To The Editor:
 Please include me among those that enthusiastically support the proposed enhancements to Belleayre Mountain Ski Center, and the development of The Resort at Catskill Park. I also support turning the rail tracks into a trail for safe biking and hiking, even if that means the end to the railroad in Ulster County. 

We have had a home in Margaretville for almost 30 years and are witnesses to the community’s ongoing and unsuccessful struggle to flourish. Instead, the economy gets worse, homes and stores become run down or abandoned, and people go elsewhere for jobs and recreation.
The three proposals mentioned above, two of which have already gone through years of scrutiny and revisions, will breathe much-needed “life” into this exquisite community of untold beauty and possibilities.
Let’s make these happen, and soon!
Joan Coyne-Benda,
