State Designation of a Brownfield Opportunity Area affirms a commitment made by the community and New York State to realize the vision and goals established during the planning process.

The Village of Philmont completed the Designation process and received State Designation of its BOA in May 2019. This step involved approval by the Village Board in July 2018 to submit Philmont’s Summit Lake & Its Watercourse BOA Nomination to the State for Designation and approval of the study and plan by the Columbia County Planning Board and the NYS Department of State.
