Saratoga Springs Open Space Project
Administrative History

Back to table of contents

The group that would become the Saratoga Springs Open Space Project (OSP) came together loosely in 1987. Its purpose was to help the city develop an open space supplement to the 1987 Saratoga Springs Master Plan. The OSP organized as an offshoot of the Saratoga Institute, a not-for-profit educational organization directed by Barbara Glaser. The OSP officially formed a board of directors in 1990. It produced the Open Space Plan, its vision for a "City in the Country" in 1991.

The Open Space Plan included 24 recommendations for the preservation of historic, natural, and rural spaces as wells as landmarks in the city of Saratoga Springs. It was widely distributed through presentations and open meetings. In 1993, the plan was revised and formally published through a grant provided by Rural New York’s Environmental Action Fund. The Saratoga Springs City Council adopted the plan in 1994. The OSP continued to develop the plan and the Council unanimously accepted its updated form in 2002.

The Open Space Project continued to work for the preservation of open space in Saratoga Springs. The OSP supported the creation of nature trails, scenic walkways, and biking paths through programs like the ISTEA Rails to Trails program. Working with funds obtained through donations and grants, the OSP helped create the Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail, Spring and Railroad Run Trails, Ramsdill Park, Ten Springs Woods Park, and a forty-seven mile looping recreational trail system throughout the city of Saratoga Springs.

The OSP has also vigorously opposed sprawl and loss of open space by organizing opposition to unsustainable development. One such campaign was the OSP's opposition to the construction of a truck bypass through the southern section of Saratoga Spa State Park. This opposition included the “Undiscovered Park” exhibit, an exhibition of art inspired by the State Park. Other campaigns include an opposition to a quarry near the Petrified Sea Gardens and protecting the rural character of the Exit 14 city entranceway against the development of an office park.

In addition, the OSP has helped coordinate several programs aimed at aiding the development of Saratoga Springs. The OSP maintained a special interest in the development of the downtown area, with projects like The Next Steps & Beyond forum and the Broadway Square mini-mall forum. These forums brought together people from all areas of Saratoga Springs to help generate ideas for the creative revitalization of the downtown.

Throughout its existence, Barbara Glaser has held executive positions in the OSP, starting as the temporary chairperson and continuing as co-chair of the advisory board. There has been a succession of fellow co-chairs, including Jeff Olsen, Douglas Ward, and Sally Hart Brown. The OSP maintained a small paid professional staff, including a Project Director and Newsletter Editor, and in 1998 hired Alain Ball Chinian as Executive Director. In 2003, the Saratoga Springs Open Space Project merged with the Land Trust of the Saratoga Region to form Saratoga PLAN (Preserving Land And Nature.) Thus the OSP no longer exists as a separate organization. Saratoga PLAN maintains a website at http://www.saratogaplan.org/.

There has been some confusion about the relations of the OSP to other organizations due to similar names and goals. The Saratoga Springs Open Space Project is not connected to the Open Space Institute, a statewide organization that also seeks to preserve scenic and natural landscape. However, the OSP has received grant funding from the Open Space Institute for trail building. The Saratoga Institute is a non-profit educational institute founded in 1985, in Saratoga Springs. It works through projects, like the OSP, the Humor Project, and The Association for the Cooperative Advancement of Science and Education. It is not related to the Sagamore Institute or the Human Resource Analysis organization also called the Saratoga Institute.


Saratoga Springs Open Space Project
Scope & Content Note

Back to table of contents

This collection contains materials related to the activities and interests of the Saratoga Springs Open Space Project. The records trace its existence from 1991, when it began to be a functioning non-profit organization, until 2002. Materials from before 1991 are generally articles or news clippings. These materials were primarily retained and maintained by Barbara Glaser, one of the founding members and co-chair of the Advisory Board throughout most of the OSP’s existence. The records include meeting minutes, correspondence, grant applications, position statements, publications, news clippings, and articles.

These materials do not contain anything from the OSP’s formative years spent creating the Open Space Plan, nor do they contain anything relating to its merger with the Land Trust of the Saratoga Region into the Saratoga PLAN organization. There is also no information relating to the Saratoga Institute or its other projects.

Several collections in the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives provide further information on the environmental issues of concern to the Saratoga Springs Open Space Project. For a complete list of related collections see the subject guide for Conservation and the Environment. Of particular interest are the records of Environmental Clearinghouse, Inc. (APAP-180), a non-profit organization that has worked with Saratoga PLAN.

Series Descriptions

Back to table of contents

Series 1: Administrative Files, 1991-2002, undated, .33 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically

This series consists of meeting minutes, agendas and notes as well as publications, articles, news clippings, and memoranda all directly pertaining to the operation of the Saratoga Springs Open Space Project (OSP). The publications include issues of Common Ground, the OSP newsletter, from 1992-1997, with scattered issues thereafter until 2001. Also included are meeting minutes and agendas from 1993-1999.

Series 2: Grant Files, 1991-1998, undated, 1 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically

The documents in this series relate to the OSP's attempts to obtain grant funding. It contains grant applications, requests for proposals, correspondence and publications. Grants were sought from organizations such as the Land Trust Alliance, Open Space Institute, and the New York State Council on the Arts. Government funding for trail building was applied for under the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA.) Applications submitted to the same organization are divided by the application year.

Series 3: Programs and Issues, 1970-1972, 1981-1986, 1989-2002, 4.36 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically

This series is a subject file of materials related to the activities and interests of the OSP. Particularly well represented are some of the conflicts over proposed development, such as the building of a truck bypass and the High Rock golf course in Saratoga Spa State Park. Also included are materials from The Next Steps & Beyond forum and the mini-mall committee, which dealt with ways to develop the downtown Saratoga Springs area. Other issues include the move of the Saratoga Farmer's Market to High Rock Spring Park, the construction of the Saratoga National Golf Club and the Vote Yes! organization, a side project advocating the passage of a 2002 bond referendum to pay for the 2001 Environmental Parks and Open Area Protection Program. Extensive news clipping files are filed separately at the end of the series.

Series 4: Trails, 1986-2000, undated, 1.33 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically

The OSP is responsible for planning, organizing and frequently funding the construction of a number of trails in and around Saratoga Springs. These include nature trails like the Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail, river trails like the Kayaderosseras Creek Canoe and Kayak Trail, and more urban trails such as the Bikeway recreational trail system. The materials in this series consist of maps, articles, correspondence, reports, and news clippings relating to the various trail building projects. Also represented are various OSP celebrations of National Trail Day. Extensive news clipping files are filed separately at the end of the series.

Series 5: Subject Files, 1973-1976, 1980-1982, 1987-2003, undated, 3.66 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

This series contains subject files about various environmental, historical, and preservation topics affecting the Saratoga Springs region. These files were collected by Barbara Glaser in a separate filing cabinet and have a slightly broader range of subjects than the files in the Programs and Issues series. Nevertheless, there is a great deal of overlap and most of the topics can be found in both series, with this series mainly consisting of News Clippings and the Programs and Issues series having a more diverse assortment of materials. There may well have been some intermingling between the contents of these filing cabinets, as some of the files in this series, particularly those from The Next Steps & Beyond program, would seem to fit better in the Programs and Issues series.
