COOPERSTOWN – As many as 30 new trees a year could be planted in Cooperstown starting in 2020, according to Village Trustee Cindy Falk.
“Right now we’re planting about a half a dozen trees a year,” she said.
The Davey Resource Group of Kent, Ohio, just released a survey of the village’s 1,897 trees, with a proposed maintenance schedule of removals and plantings.

COOPERSTOWN – After five years of saving paid parking revenue, the Village of Cooperstown is ready to start the $1.2 million Pioneer Street Reconstruction Project and pay for it with money set aside.
“Some of these pipes date back to the 1890s,” Trustee Cindy Falk, who chairs the Village Board’s Streets Committee, told a public meeting tonight at the fire hall. “In 2014, during the Winter Carnival, we had a water main break while it was snowing. There were crews plowing and crews trying to fix it. They’re over 100 years old. We’re living on borrowed time.”
