NORTH CREEK-- North Creek Ski Bowl has obtained a $37,121 state Smart Growth grant that will be used to place kiosks at trailheads, develop trailhead signage and install strategically placed trail map boards.

Money will also fund an additional one kilometer of trails to connect this town-owned ski and snowboarding park to the nearby state-owned Gore Mountain Ski Center.  Benches and picnic tables will be installed on trails and at the picnic area, and brochures and interactive mapping will be developed, also. The grant is part of $443,000 awarded to eight community revitalization and historic preservation projects throughout the Adirondacks.

Also in Warren County, the town of Bolton will get $68,000 to support construction of a public parking facility that will unify the town’s public services including the municipal center, health center, recreation commission, local police station, farmers market, senior center and the Office for the Aging meal site.

The parking facility in the town center will accommodate 58 vehicles and will be constructed using green infrastructure principles and best management practices for storm water.

“Smart growth in the Adirondack Park means revitalizing the park’s villages and hamlets to make them more attractive places to live and do business, while maintaining strong protection for the wilderness beyond those communities and improving the connections between the two,” said Adirondack Council Executive Director William C. Janeway in a statement. “These grants will help communities complete their own downtown improvement plans, as well as historic preservation projects that show how unique they are.”
