Ron Wightman, Town Supervisor of Willing:

“It is always good to have some good news. I have had a conversation with the DEC and they will be issuing a news release shortly. All I know at this time is that it will be a state wildlife management area. So hunting, fishing and hiking. It is about 310 acres and borders the Genesee River.”
