It is true that Otsego 200 is supporting this historic district nomination. Otsego 2000 is a (501)(c)(3) organization; we are not.
Otsego 2000 is managing the revenues necessary for the project. I consider it natural and appropriate for the sponsors of the Glimmerglass District to support us. I know of no hardship that has been realized by any individual or local government in any of the surrounding towns of Cherry Valley, Otsego, Richfield or Roseboom. Historic District recognition, hopefully, will bring pride and will foster prudent use to Springfield land. I don’t think any of us wants to bring irreversible damage to our town or our Otsego Lake region.
