  •  A presentation on the proposed Port Jervis Whitewater Kayak Park will take place at the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway, Inc. (UDSB) meeting on Monday, August 27, at 7 p.m. at the Upper Delaware Council office, 211 Bridge St., Narrowsburg. All UDSB meetings are open to the public.?Anna Marie Tison, administrative assistant to City of Port Jervis Mayor Russell R. Potter, will give a Power Point presentation and answer questions about the proposal to create a whitewater kayak park on a 40-acre Delaware River waterfront site in downtown Port Jervis.?The project would use the resources of water flow and rock formations engineered in a half-mile stretch of the river to create “whitewater” rapids with varying degrees of wave features appropriate for users ranging from the novice boater to the expert kayaker. The estimated cost for planning, design, and construction is reportedly $2.5 million. Park development would require permits to be secured on the local, state, and federal levels.?For more information on the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway that runs along designated areas of New York State Route 97 from Hancock to Port Jervis, please visit www.upperdelawarescenicbyway.org or call the toll-free brochure request hotline of (866) 511-UDSB (8372).
