City should improve access to river

City should improve access to river

Many cities make the river running through it a focal point for its scenic qualities. By doing this, they attract more people to their city to spend some time there and also utilize the stores, restaurants and hotels.

There are many places in Oneonta where providing more viewing and access to the river would be a great plus. When you park at Hannaford next to the fence, you can just about see the river through the trees and brush. If a concerned group would convince store owners and private properties to cut out some brush and small trees, that would make the river more visible. If at some places you could add picnic tables and parking access, it would be a great addition to Oneonta. Maybe the state or county owns some riverside property that could be improved scenically?
