How We Got Started
In some ways the history of this organization reaches back to the summer of 2010. A group of residents and a town board member took on the task of improving the hamlet through the addition of a pedestrian and bike access path down the length of Route 138. While this was not within NYSDOT’s scope of construction plans, many lessons were learned. In the fall of 2011, a “Meet the Candidates”, meeting for the town board was held in large part due to former resident Jeffrey White. In the spring of 2012, members of the newly elected town board were invited to a town hall style meeting to address the concerns of the Goldens Bridge Hamlet. By the summer of 2015, the need for an organization to advocate for the hamlet was fully realized. Behind the scenes work throughout the summer and into the fall has taken place. Relationships with potential stakeholders in the hamlet have been established. Outreach to the community continues to take place. Governing bodies that have a presence in the hamlet are addressing potential improvements.
