The Philipstown Field Committee, made up on representatives from the Town of Philipstown, Haldane and Garrison Schools and the Villages of Cold Spring and Nelsonville, is in the early stages of conducting a study of public athletic fields and facilities in the Town of Philipstown. The committee’s goal is to develop a plan that will meet the needs of the whole community without duplication of services. Once completed, the plan will be used as a guide for future improvements to athletic fields and facilities throughout the Town.
A public workshop will be held on Monday, Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Haldane auditorium. The committee’s sports and recreation consultant, Ward Associates, PC, will make a short slide presentation about the study, existing fields, facilities and user groups. Following the presentation, residents will be able to offer input on the existing facilities, their use and conditions and to discuss their ideas for improvement. Input from the community and user groups will allow the committee to prioritize improvements that are most important to town residents. Call Philipstown Recreation, 845-424-4618, for more information orquestions.
