Collaboration Continues With SUNY Plattsburgh

Plattsburgh, NY

Saratoga Associates joins the City of Plattsburgh and SUNY Plattsburgh to gain insight on the City Beach Implementation Plan.

In 2016, Saratoga Associates completed the Phase I “Plattsburgh City Beach and Crete Center Redevelopment Feasibility Study.” Throughout the design and study processes, Saratoga Associates worked closely with the City, the community, and the NYS Department of State, who funded the project.

Capturing Student Input

On June 10, 2021, Saratoga Associates joined Director of Community Development Matt Miller, along with SUNY Plattsburgh faculty and students. The SUNY Plattsburgh interns will be assisting Saratoga Associates by performing GIS mapping, visual site assessment, and existing conditions documentation through field work this summer. Their work will help to guide the planning and development of the proposed improvements at City Beach, including dune stabilization and a network of nature trails with interpretive features.
