The State of New York will be investing $2.1 million to upgrade and repair Fair Haven Beach State Park, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this week.
The upgrade will be funded through New York Works, which is designed to reinvent state economic development with a new strategy that will put New Yorkers back to work rebuilding the state’s infrastructure.
“New York State has passed, for the second year in a row, a transformative and balanced budget that holds the line on spending, while focusing on job creation and government efficiency,” Cuomo said. “The centerpiece of this budget is the New York Works program, a new strategy for leveraging capital to put New Yorkers back to work and rebuilding our aging infrastructure including the state park system that is used by so many people across the state.”
Senator Patty Ritchie said, “Central and Northern New York offer visitors from across the United States some of the most beautiful parks in the world, serving as major tourist destinations on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence Valley. Putting New Yorkers back to work rebuilding our park system is a critical investment in our state’s future that will continue to help bring customers to our region’s businesses and jobs to our residents.”
