Pawling Village Green project gets financial boost from state

PAWLING – The Village of Pawling received a financial shot in the arm from the state’s Economic Development Assistance Program with $250,000 for its Pawling Green and Veterans’ Memorial Park.

Mayor Robert Lifflard said the project serves a dual purpose.

“I look at is as beautification and I also look at it as economic that government, meaning the state and the local municipality, doing their party to help jobs, spark interest in people opening businesses here in the Village of Pawling,” he said.

The money will be applied to a $2.4 million fund raised by the community for village economic development. The state funds were delivered by Senator Gregory Ball, who secured them from Albany.
