Fulton making plans to renovate waterfront

OSWEGO, NY– The Local Waterfront Revitalization Program in Fulton held an open meeting on Tuesday in attempt to get the public’s opinion about the project. The citizens of Fulton, along with the Fulton Community Development Agency, read through public input received after the first meeting back in December, as well as other sections of the comprehensive plan. The hope of everyone involved is that improving lakefront properties around Fulton will make the city a more disable destination for tourists, and in turn provide an economic boost to local businesses.

 

Local Waterfront Revitalization Program’s first meeting included discussions about the following locations:

  • Phillips Street Area: beautifying the slope area adjacent to the properties bordering the west side of the river
  • South End Street Area: further develop the Green Street boat launch and increase public awareness of its location.
  • North End Area: accommodate activities such as boat rentals, water taxis, and river tours to Battle Island, Phoenix or Oswego

Construction of this magnitude is never simple to execute. The difficulties that come with putting these plans into motion are familiar to Fulton said Fulton Mayor Ron Woodward.
