Southeast Steuben River Vision Project

The planning and visioning phase for the Southeast Steuben River Vision Project has wrapped up, and you are invited to review maps and draft report chapters in the documents list below. 

The project started in 2007 with a meeting of community leaders that September and a van tour of existing facilities in October. The year-long project brought the river-related trails and launch sites and amenities in southeast Steuben County into a coherent whole picture. Dovetailing this is the recently released “Chemung River Comprehensive Master Plan” that was developed with LWRP funds in neighboring Chemung County and filling in 'gaps' in regional, state and interstate blue and green trail systems.

The project has resulted in a Southeast Steuben 'River Vision' and an expanded Friends of the Chemung River Watershed covering the length of the Chemung River including the stretch in Pennsylvania. Over the long term, communities hope to improve public access to the Chemung River, protect the river’s natural resources, generate jobs/revenue for outdoor sports/water-related businesses, strengthen community cooperation, and further advance the Chemung River as part of the Susquehanna River Trail and the National Park Service Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network. All six involved communities have been presented with draft resolutions supporting the vision and pledging to move forward as funding allows. 

The project team would like to thank all the people who have walked the proposed trails, attended meetings and provided comments. If you have questions or would like to become involved, please email Chelsea M. Robertson at or call (607) 962-5092. 

Four southeast Steuben communities were awarded a grant of $26,430 from the NYS Local Waterfront Revitalization Program to create a 'River Vision' for the Chemung River from its beginning in Painted Post to the Steuben County line. The city of Corning is the lead applicant on behalf of itself; the villages of Painted Post, Riverside, and South Corning; and Towns of Corning and Erwin. The project totals $52,860 including match provided by the communities. The project should be completed by fall 2010.
