CACDA receives grant from community foundation

— The Cazenovia Area Community Development Association (CACDA) was recently awarded a grant from the Central New York Community Foundation for their 2013 Signature Project. This project will create visibility and encourage use of the vast trail network and wide range of recreational amenities in the Cazenovia area.

Through comprehensive mapping of local trails, parks and cultural sites, CACDA will create an activity-driven interactive website (GoCaz.com) that promotes multi-seasonal sports and recreational opportunities. The goal is to launch the website by the end of 2013.

“The grant of $10,344 will be used to develop the website and for signage to help direct users of the local trail network connect through the village,” said CACDA Executive Director Lauren Lines. “We are very grateful for this funding.”

This community project has received a tremendous amount of volunteer support and enthusiasm. “Collaboration among many area organizations and community members was an objective of the Signature Project idea,” said CACDA President Kristi Andersen. “The Community Foundation grant was welcome news.”

The CACDA Board of Directors has initiated an appeal to raise additional funds to support this project. Members of the community may contribute by visiting cacda.net/annualappeal or by mailing a check to CACDA at 95 Albany Street.
