Midway State Park Master Plan Available for Final Review

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has completed a Master Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement for Midway State Park.

The plan outlines OPRHP's vision for potential capital improvements, operational enhancements and natural and cultural resource stewardship within Midway State Park in Chautauqua County for the next ten to fifteen years. Factors such as the availability of funding, the need to invest in rehabilitation of existing park infrastructure, and other pressing needs in the entire state parks system will influence the feasibility and timing of the improvements.

Copies are available for review at the Park Office, at the offices of the agency contacts and at the Bemus Point Library, 13 Main St., Bemus Point and the Prendergast Library Association, 509 Cherry Street, Jamestown, NY. The online version of the Master Plan/DEIS is available at:

Comments on the Final Plan/FEIS will be accepted by the Agency during a final consideration period until Wednesday, December 10, at which time the plan will be submitted to the State Parks commissioner for final approval. Comments should be forwarded to the contact person(s).
