New York State Parks: Abandon plans to build a parking lot on a field in Seneca Lake State Park

Seneca Lake State Park is an oasis of green beside the deep blue of Seneca Lake. Generations have come to enjoy the park in their own way; the tall, old trees and expansive fields are inviting to all and exclusive to none. The proposed parking lot is neither needed (the field is surrounded by three other parking lots) nor wanted (local citizens and Geneva City Council have voiced their opposition on the record). If built, the new parking lot will serve one use (boat trailer parking) while eliminating a vast array of current and future uses (Musselman Triathlon transition area, sports tournaments, picnicking, play). Abandoning this project will preserve the green space for all to enjoy.

This petition was delivered to:
  • Finger Lakes Parks Regional Director
    Kathie Notarfonzo
  • Deputy Commissioner for Finance and Administration
    Mindy Scott
  • NYS Parks Public Information Officer
    Randy Simons
