Alliance seeks to boost traffic through upcounty hamlets

The Tri-Lakes Business Alliance is seeking to draw more traffic into the hamlets of northern Warren County to boost commerce and revitalize downtowns. Although Chestertown’s commerce particularly has been struggling in recent years, one leading example of success is Country Girl Crafts & Quilts which routinely attracts people to Chestertown for its unique offerings.

— Alliance members noted that although grant funding for sewer systems has recently become scarce, those municipalities that have project plans in place and possess the greatest need are more likely to receive funding. Alliance members said they’d continue to lobby town officials for development of such plans.

The North Creek Chamber of Commerce and North Warren Chamber will be jointly hosting a mixer March 15 at the Panther Mountain Inn. At the event, a representative of Centurion Cycling, which is sponsoring a large-scale bicycling race in June through Warren County, is expected to give a presentation.

As many as 2,000 cyclists and their friends and families will be wheeling through the county on June 22 through 24, with scheduled stops in Chestertown, Brant Lake, Wevertown, Pottersville, Warrensburg, North Creek and Hague — and businesses are urged to take advantage of the influx of people.

The next meeting of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance is set for 9 a.m. Friday, March 9 at the Panther Mountain Inn in Chestertown.
