Mt. Peter Ski Area opened for the season - Warwick,NY -

  • 2 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • It had already been snowing on the mountain because the snow blowers at Mount Peter were operating as often as temperatures permit. And then Mother Nature cooperated last week in a big way with a major snow storm. And so last weekend, Saturday and Sunday, December 19-20 Mt. Peter Ski Area opened for the 2019-2021 season. Initially it was for pass holders only followed by a general open-to-the-public day on Wednesday, December 23. The tubing hill also opened to the public last Sunday. Opening around mid-December is not unusual for the ski area. But this year was different. Skiers and snow boarders were handed “Welcome to Mount Peter” fliers describing new protocols for this season as a result of the COVID-19 rules. For example face masks were required at all times except when actively skiing, snowboarding or while eating or drinking. And social distancing must be practiced at all times. But on opening day and throughout the weekend, there was a huge turnout with everyone following the rules and still having a great time on the slopes. To insure additional safety for this season Mount Peter also installed ultraviolet (UV) lights across the property. The UV lights are Sterile-Bright, a product of Ultra-Tech Lighting, which uses a multi-tiered approach to surface and air sterilization using a combination of powerful UV light that directly eliminates and sterilizes surfaces and spaces from pathogens. It is described as environmentally friendly and safe for all ages. The lights were installed in Mount Peter’s main lodge as well as its sunrise lodge and at the tubing hill and rental location to disinfect all equipment prior to the next guest. Once a space is treated, the pathogen-free environment can be sustained as long as proper procedures are followed. The facility also has a portable hand-held unit controlled via Bluetooth technology that can sterilize areas such as chair lifts, bathrooms, food services areas, and locker rooms in as few as five minutes and leaves no chemical residue behind. This season Mt. Peter will celebrate its 85th year of continuous operation. It is well known throughout the Greater Metropolitan area for its friendly family atmosphere, free beginner ski and snowboard school, great snowmaking, expert grooming, a terrain park and top-notch racing and development programs. “The Friendly One,” as Mt. Peter is known, is the oldest operating ski area in New York State, and one of the few remaining family operated ski areas in the country. Professional PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) and AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors) will take the first-time beginner up on the slopes and teach to his or her needs and age. Almost every weekend Mt. Peter hosts a special fun event for the entire family. Conditions, hours of operation, special events and other notices are reported daily on a recording at 986-4940.

Renovations of Manor House completed - Warwick,NY - 11/9/20

  • 2 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • Town of Warwick Supervisor Michael Sweeton just announced that the renovations of the original farm house, known as the Manor House, a roughly 10,000 sq. ft. building on the site of the former Mid Orange Correctional Facility, have been completed. And the building has been leased to the Orange County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) to operate as an accelerator designed to launch new start-up businesses. This County agency works to advance the local economy by retaining and creating jobs and attracting new businesses. “This will be a launching pad for new businesses that can, as they grow, launch into other locations within our town providing jobs and tax revenues,” said Sweeton. “I want to thank the many local subcontractors who did a fantastic job in saving this very historic building.” In 2011, Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office announced that the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility in Warwick was on its list of seven prisons to be shut down to save the state money. And in 2014, the State of New York approved the transfer of the property to the Warwick Valley Local Development Corporation and the Town of Warwick. One objective in acquiring the former prison was to create Warwick’s first and only business park that would produce tax revenues and provide jobs. And with that in mind Supervisor Sweeton contacted the Orange County Industrial Development Agency, which had created accelerators in other parts of the County. The farmland that became the Mid-Orange correctional facility was originally acquired by Captain John Wisner, Sr. on September 8, 1766. The Manor House was built in 1842 by Henry B. Wisner “The current renovation of the original farm house,” said Sweeton, “not only preserves this historic building but also creates an incubator for six start-up companies. These start-ups will have the potential to grow, producing jobs and tax revenues for our town.” ###

Dining out on Main Street opened June 25 after final approval - Warwick,NY - 6/25/20

  • 9 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • The approval from the State Liquor Authority for the expanded footprints for restaurants who serve alcohol came just in time for the first day, June 25, of the temporary closing of Main Street for outdoor dining during the corona virus pandemic. The approved plan, suggested by Mayor Michael Newhard, was to close Main Street and also Railroad Avenue and Spring Street to vehicular traffic from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. That would allow restaurants to set up tables on what would effectively be a pedestrian mall. And it would also attract visitors to retail stores. The first step was to obtain the approval of the Village Board of Trustees and it did that on Monday, June 15. The next major obstacle was to obtain the approval of the New York DOT since Main Street is actually State Route 94. And the final hurdle, an approval by the State Liquor Authority, came through just in time for the four week program beginning Thursday, June 25. On June 23 the Mid-Hudson Region also entered Phase 3 which meant restaurants could also resume dining indoors at 50 per cent capacity. And this past weekend, with the exception of some brief periods of rain, homebound residents, anxious to get back out and enjoy a meal at a local restaurant, came out in droves. The biggest problem was a longer than usual waiting time for one of the outdoor tables but Newhard described the event as a “dress rehearsal,” for the Village as well as the restaurants and a learning experience that would improve in the following three events. Guidelines permitted seated diners, but not servers, to remove their masks. And menus were posted outside but not left on tables. In addition to those restaurants along Main Street, Railroad Avenue or Spring Street, there were many restaurants open that already had parking areas and the like available for outdoor dining..
