LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION honoring Scott Lewendon upon the occasion of his
designation as recipient of the  Saving  Special  Places  Award  by  the
Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy

WHEREAS,  It  is  incumbent  upon the people of the State of New York to
recognize and acknowledge those within our midst who have  made  signif-
icant contributions to the quality of life therein; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that
the quality and character of life in the  communities  across  New  York
State  are  reflective  of  the concerned and dedicated efforts of those
organizations and individuals who would devote themselves to the welfare
of the community and its citizenry; and
  WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its  long-
standing  traditions,  this  Legislative  Body  is justly proud to honor
Scott Lewendon upon the occasion of his designation as recipient of  the
Saving Special Places Award by the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy, to be
celebrated  on Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at Creo Restaurant in Albany, New
York; and
  WHEREAS, Scott Lewendon has volunteered a significant amount  of  time
and  effort working on the Hudson Rail Trail; Mohawk Hudson Land Conser-
vancy rents the land from Albany County, which owns it, given up by  the
former Delaware and Hudson Railroad in the 1990s; and
  WHEREAS,  Albany County purchased it in the early 2000s hoping to make
it into a walking/recreation trail, but was unable  to  accomplish  this
due  to  financial  constraints; Scott Lewendon has done a great deal of
design and organizational work all on a  volunteer  basis  in  order  to
allow  Mohawk  Hudson  to  make this former Railroad line into the envi-
sioned recreational trail; and
  WHEREAS, A true  asset  to  society,  Scott  Lewendon's  distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Scott Lewendon upon the occasion of his designation  as  recipient
of  the Saving Special Places Award by the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservan-
cy; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Scott Lewendon.
