Seneca Lake Scenic Byway Plans Move Forward

Highlighting Route 414′s natural beauty; committee awaits byway designation:
The coming designation of State Route 414 from Lodi in Seneca County through the Town of Hector to the Watkins Glen village boundary as a Scenic Byway “will help provide much wider recognition of the scenic, recreational and historic assets along the east side of Seneca Lake, the Seneca Lake Scenic Byways Inc.,” contends in one of its early flyers urging byway designation.

The six member byway committee, a non-profit group, agrees the proposed byway “will help preserve and highlight the natural beauty we all enjoy, while enhancing the area’s appeal to tourists and boosting the local economy.”


Making up the Seneca Lake Scenic Byway Inc. board are Barry O’Neill, Bruce Adams, Attorney Steve Getman, Vicki Kelly, George Kellogg and Chris Kimball-Peterson.
