A meeting of the minds was held in the Town of Lloyd last Wednesday to look at ways in which the town might rezone, redevelop and revitalize various corridors to try and build off the approximately one million visitors to the Walkway Over the Hudson who have poured into the Hudson Valley since the pedestrian bridge opened in October of 2010. This was one of a series of meetings that are being co-sponsored by Scenic Hudson, Walkway over the Hudson, the City of Poughkeepsie and the Dutchess County Chamber of Commerce in an effort to improve Walkway gateway communities like Lloyd and Poughkeepsie, which are now linked together by the 1.2-mile elevated pedestrian footbridge, a former train trestle turned into a Historic Landmark and an increasingly popular tourist destination.
