Last week, Gov. Cuomo announced a number of initiative to promote tourism in the Catskill Mountain region. They include holding the inaugural Catskill Challenge in summer 2016, a $7.3 million plan to improve the entrance to the Minnewaska State Park Preserve, and a $5 million Catskill region tourism ad campaign.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“Our tourism industry plays an integral role in this state’s economy and we will continue to invest in our natural assets to support local businesses, grow our regional economies and generate new economic opportunities statewide.”
