Clarifying membership of the scenic byway organization

The Upper Delaware Scenic Byway, Inc. committee appreciates The River Reporter’s recent publication of its advertising booklet, “Explore the Rt. 97 Scenic Byway.” We hope that more media sources will follow your lead and help publicize this amazing highway that winds its way along the wild, scenic and recreational Delaware River.

However, we do need to clarify that our volunteer organization was not consulted over the booklet’s content. One of the profiles featured under the theme of “People and Places Along the Byway” interviews a Long Eddy resident who has renovated two historic buildings and includes a photo of Jensen’s Ledges located in the Bouchoux Trail State Forest Preserve.

To avoid any misrepresentation, please note that the Towns of Fremont and Hancock have opted against participating in our non-profit organization which advocates for the maintenance, enhancement and promotion of the 2002 state-designated Upper Delaware Scenic Byway along the majority of NYS Route 97.

Again, thanks for the publication, and we hope your readers will avail themselves of the wonderful attractions that you highlighted.

Glenn Pontier, UDSB, Inc. Chairperson
Narrowsburg, NY
