A VISION FOR COPAKE
Copake, like many other communities today, consists of varied groups ranging from generations of families born in this area, some of whom are now struggling to make ends meet, and the full time working “middle class,” to a large number of part-time second home owners and retired seniors. Copake is also unique in that we have a large number of camps and campgrounds, a world class golf course and several distinct communities: the downtown “Hamlet,” in the Town if Copake, Copake Falls, Copake Lake, West Copake and Craryville. The Roe Jan Park, Roe Jan Library and Taconic Hills CSD are also in the Town of Copake. Our Volunteer Fire District has won numerous awards and commendations. We are the home to Camphill Village, a very special integrated community for developmentally challenged adults. Copake borders the Towns of Hillsdale, Ancram and Taghkanic, and the state of Massachusetts, has a spectacular State Park, Bash-Bish Falls and Catamount Ski area. So much history and beauty surrounds us.
The challenges we face include blending the various cultures and populations to make Copake a successful and thriving community while preserving our "Land of Rural Charm." Civic engagement and maintaining open channels of communication are key! We must focus on working together for the good of all of our residents.
I believe the priorities for the Town should continue to focus on fiscal responsibility, promotion of economic growth, support of local farmers, engaging our youth and helping Veterans and Seniors. There is so much work to be done. My goal for 2019 is to see Copake Park develop and implement a plan for an all inclusive, handicapped accessible playground.
"Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, working together is success."
