LAKEWOOD — The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its permanent new office location at 71 E. Fairmount Ave., Lakewood.

Guests were given a tour of the new office space and heard remarks from state Sen. George Borrello, R-Sunset Bay, Assemblyman Andy Goodell, R-Jamestown, Jacqueline Phelps, deputy district director for Rep. Tom Reed, R-Corning, County Executive PJ Wendel, Lakewood Mayor Randy Holcomb and Joanna Dahlbeck, Jamestown Community Chamber coordinator.

The conservancy was previously located on the third floor of Tew Mansion in Jamestown but had outgrown the space. Its new location has 2,200 square feet of office space and includes seven offices, two bathrooms, a large meeting/board room and a reception area, making it more accommodating to the conservancy’s growing staff and program needs. There is also off-street parking in the back of the building as well as an 1,100-square-foot storage garage where the conservancy can consolidate its preserve maintenance equipment in a central and secure location. With offices all on the ground floor, the new location is also now fully accessible, highly visible and more welcoming to visitors.

The building was purchased from Lakewood residents Leon and Jennifer Stein, supporters of the conservancy.

An open house will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, July 11.
