The public is invited to participate in any or all of the sessions which will take place at 7 p.m. on May 4 and 25 and at 10 a.m. on June 15. The first workshop will focus on the eastern portion of the corridor including Cohoes, Waterford, and parts of the towns of Colonie and Halfmoon. The May 25 session will focus on the western portion of the Byway including the towns of Niskayuna, Glenville, and the city of Schenectady. The final session on June 15 will focus on the central portion of the Byway including the towns of Halfmoon, Colonie, and Clifton Park.

The Byway management plan was originally created in 2002 for the 28-mile corridor parallel to the Mohawk River, Erie Canal, and New York State Barge Canal that follows the Erie Canal route between Schenectady and Waterford/Cohoes.

For those unable to attend online, written comments and suggestions on what the next five, 10 and 20 years should look like for the Byway are also welcome and can be directed to the Coalition.
