Cornell Cooperative Extension Ulster County Moving to New Location in Kingston Plaza
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s (CCEUC) Executive Director, Lydia Reidy has announced that CCEUC’s main offices currently located at 10 Westbrook Lane in Kingston, NY will relocate to the former Blockbuster Video Store located at 232 Plaza Road in the Kingston Plaza. The new office and education center is set to open on Monday January 30, 2012.
“Relocating our offices to this new site has many advantages,” explained Lydia Reidy, CCEUC Executive Director. “It’s a retail location in a high-traffic area – in the heart of the Kingston Plaza. This fosters greater connectivity with the community, which is critical to an agency charged with educating the public on a variety of issues.”
“The new office site is near a public transportation hub. The City of Kingston and Ulster County Rural Transportation bus lines depart from the Kingston Plaza to serve Kingston and the county. Regarding the space itself, the new offices include a larger multiple-purpose room, which improves the organization’s programming capabilities. The office also features an open, professional layout that creates a more pleasant work environment. “Our new office is an improved work environment that will enhance our programming, thereby bettering the lives of Ulster County residents,” Reidy added.
The phone number will remain the same at 845-340-3990. Business hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
