The Town of Marlborough is investing over $1.5 Million to restore the Milton Landing Pier, a dilapidated deep-water pier to active use for recreation, education and tourism, providing a new gateway to the region’s many attractions in agritourism, wine and craft beverages, and arts and recreation. The round eight awarded project – CFA #81386 – received an ESD Grant of $313,000. The goals of this strategic placemaking project are to improve quality of life, to increase tourism without adding to vehicular congestion or pollution, and to provide the infrastructure to support innovative new products and services. The pier’s restoration will adaptively reuse the former fuel dock and adjacent land parcels into Milton Landing Park and Pier – a gateway for visitors from across the globe to access the region’s many attractions. The Pier provides deep water mooring and will accommodate large touring and educational vessels.
“I am excited to begin making Milton Landing Park Pier a destination to bring economic and recreational vitality to the Hamlet of Milton and showcase all that the Town of Marlborough has to offer, as the heart of the Hudson Valley.”
-Al Lanzetta, Marlborough Town Supervisor
"After many years of effort, today we start construction on the Milton Landing pier renovation. Many people have contributed their time and talent to a shared vision of this site. The goal is now in sight and we can see the benefits for our residents and visitors in the near term. This project shows what a community can accomplish when people work together toward a common goal. It’s been a pleasure to contribute to this team."
-Rosemary Wein, Vice President, Milton Landing Committee
