Duane Martinez

Prior to becoming an urban planner blending twin passions for design and community engagement, Duane spent 11 years working for Oregon’s Rogue Farm Corps, which makes farming accessible to people historically underrepresented in agriculture. Now, he is leading collaborative, locally driven projects focused on Newburgh’s Quassaick Creek and Poughkeepsie’s Fall Kill Creek to address residents’ expressed concerns for safe places to enjoy the outdoors, trails offering non-motorized transportation and recreation, and opportunities to foster a deeper sense of belonging.

Jeffrey Anzevino

Jeff is Scenic Hudson’s go-to resource for people concerned about a project’s threats to their community’s natural, cultural, or scenic assets. His skill in assessing harmful environmental and visual impacts and ability to mobilize and lead grassroots action have been key to halting or scaling back many poorly planned residential and industrial developments. Currently, Jeff is working with communities along the Hudson on a safe solution for crossing the railroad tracks in lieu of locked gates and fences Amtrak has proposed erecting at long-cherished riverfront destinations along its Empire Line.

Ned Sullivan

Throughout his career, Ned has used his expertise in forging partnerships to achieve great victories. As Maine’s Environmental Commissioner, he united a bipartisan group of business and environmental leaders to draft landmark legislation ending the discharge of deadly dioxins from pulp and paper companies. At Scenic Hudson, he actively guides our collaborative approach that has led to success in milestone projects such as daylighting (uncovering) the Saw Mill River in downtown Yonkers and transforming a portion of Beacon’s former industrial waterfront into magnificent Long Dock Park.
