NARROWSBURG – The Towns of Highland and Cochecton recently completed their Technical Assistance Grant projects under the Upper Delaware Council’s (UDC) 2014 program.
Both local governments applied for funding from the UDC to purchase topographic and tax maps from Sullivan County Real Property Tax Services. The Town of Cochecton also obtained soil maps.
The UDC on Feb. 25 approved payments of $492 to the Town of Highland for its 40 maps, and $656 to the Town of Cochecton for its set of 26 maps.
The localized availability of the maps will facilitate town officials and the public in accessing property ownership and land use information.
These grants were among nine projects totaling $25,000 approved by the UDC on Oct. 3, 2013 for Fiscal Year 2014 (Oct. 1, 2013-Sept. 30, 2014).
Technical Assistance Grants (TAGs) are available competitively to the UDC’s 13 member towns and townships, and five encompassing county governments in NY and PA, for non-construction projects that address goals and needs identified in the River Management Plan for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
Since its inception in 1988, the UDC has awarded a cumulative total of $745,394 to fund 219 projects through the TAG program. The current deadline for project completions is August 22, 2014.
