Crown Point establishes 'revitalization group'

CROWN POINT - Crown Point has formally created an organization to coordinate future plans.

The Crown Point Revitalization Group was formed by the town board at its June meeting. Under its umbrella are three committees - an Events Committee, the Chamber Exploration Committee and the Binder Committee.

The group - and its committees - is already at work, Supervisor Bethany Kosmider said. Attending the initial revitalization meeting were Roger Brown, Yvonne Dushane, Suzanne Maye, Marilyn Crossman, Bonnie Sprinkle, Tom Hughes, David Hirtle, Karen Hennessy, Nancy Ockrin, Joe Bodette, Cindy Bodette, Kimberly Woods and Kosmider.

The chamber committee has already held meetings as it attempts to determine whether a chamber is needed in Crown Point. Crown Point businesses are now members of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.

The next Chamber Exploration Committee meeting will be held Monday, July 19, at 6 p.m. at the Stoney Lonesome Bed & Breakfast. It is a pot luck dinner and all Crown Point business owners are invited.

"Nancy Ockrin and her husband own and operate the B&B and would like to encourage Crown Point business owners to bring a dish and meet to talk about a chamber, what they'd like to see, and discuss ideas and answer questions," Kosmider said. "It's a great chance to meet each other and enjoy an evening of support and exchanging ideas. Members of the committee will be calling each Crown Point business owner and inviting them personally to come to the pot luck social."

The Events Committee has taken charge of planning and scheduling special events in the community. It will meet Thursday, July 15, at 6 p.m. at the town hall.

The Binder Committee has been charged with creating binders with information for visitors with brochures, business cards and other information. The binders will be placed throughout the community. That group met June 30th at the Lake Champlain Visitors Center at the ferry site.

The Crown Point Revitalization Group is scheduled to meet again on Wednesday, July 21, at 6 p.m. at the town hall.
