KINGSTON – The Ulster County COVID-19 Commemoration Commission has extended its deadline for design proposal submissions to December 15.

The project, planned for a spring installation at the county fairgrounds complex in New Paltz, will be a space for rest and reflection with interpretive signage linked to a website that will feature the stories of frontline workers and other members of the community.

The commission, comprises of nurses, EMS responders, teachers, food service personnel, police officers and other essential workers, was established in March 2022.

The project will focus on frontline workers who put their lives on the line during the pandemic, residents who were lost, as well as the spirit of unity among neighbors as they banded together.

Designs may be submitted by mail or in person to the county executive’s office, 244 Fair Street, Kingston, or through the county’s COVID-19 website.
