This month Jerrine Corallo of SALT Development hosted Tolga Morawski, Greater Mohawk Valley Land Bank (Land Bank), Cabryn Gurdo and Heidi Sourwine, Land Bank Americorps volunteers and Town of Schoharie Supervisor Chris Tague for a SALT Speaks radio interview with Ed Sherlock of WSDE 94.3 & AM-1190 Cobleskill about a blight removal program that is gearing up for our region.
As Supervisor Tague stated, “SALT didn’t leave us after the flood, they’ve continued on. They’ve looked at better ways to help improve the local economy, to help sustain what we do have here, and to help bring in more… this is going to be something to really look forward to in the future.“
Ms. Corallo and Mr. Morawski spoke about program development, how a land bank works and the importance of a local volunteer involvement. Supervisor Tague recalled how the project got started in Schoharie County. Demolition and rehabilitation projects are expected to begin this summer. To get involved email JerrineC@SALTDevelopment.org
