In its June 10th town meeting, the Rosendale town board approved the sale of the Waterworks parcel to the Open Space Institute (OSI). A 30-day period for public petitioning of the sale closed on July 17. The closing is expected to occur within the next several months.

Following an expected transfer by OSI to the Mohonk Preserve, a planning process for the Waterworks will be developed by the Preserve considering community, environmental, and recreational interests. A projected opening date for the Waterworks pending completion of all of these developments remains to be announced.

The bouldering moratorium also remains in effect.

Any update on this? When are they planning to open access to this area?

The MPNA hopes that Chris Moratz or any of the current GCC board could comment on the size of the Rosendale Waterworks land deal. At the start, the Town of Rosendale said it had 77 acres of land to sell. The deed (L4933 pg191)that is recorded is only for 63.08 acres. Where did the other land go? Why was it sold to open space conservancy and not directly to the Mohonk Preserve? and Is the Brooks and Brooks map going to be filed?
