Blueway Corridor talk reaches Parishville

PARISHVILLE - On the heels of two fiery meetings in Colton this month, the Parishville Town Board had a brief discussion on the Raquette River Blueway Corridor Tuesday.

“We have people now that are saying that the Raquette River is not a blueway. It actually doesn’t affect us too much at this point,” Deputy Supervisor Shirley Robinson said. “The Blueway Corridor, at this point it’s just a lot of information coming and going. There is an organization that wants to start grants and all kinds of things for a blueway that may or may not be. So at this point, everything is just really information more than anything else.”

At Colton’s Feb. 12 town board meeting, local property owner Walt Paul charged that town officials have ignored his numerous legal concerns about the corridor designation over the past few years.

He said that despite a combination of documents, a website, funds being solicited to develop a blueway corridor and more, the Raquette River is not an officially designated blueway corridor.

But some town officials, including Supervisor Dennis B. Bulger, say the concerns raised by Mr. Paul and Colton resident Schyler Shea about the legitimacy of the Raquette River Blueway Corridor group are unwarranted.
