HAVING CAMPSITES AVAILABLE IN POTSDAM VILLAGE A GREAT IDEA, COMMITTEE AGREES--The Potsdam Village Comprehensive Plan Committee was unanimous in expressing that having some sort of municipally-supported camping facility--not necessarily a "village campground" per se--where people could stay overnight would be a tremendous draw for people seeking to do other activities, especially those related to the outdoors. Committee member Joe Gallagher suggested parents might choose to send their children to one of the local colleges if such a facility were available, a few small plots not competing with state or private grounds nearby. David Trithart says such municipally-supported facilities are commonplace out west, but not in the Northeast and it could be a major draw.
