Multi-Use Ice Complex In Upstate New York
Upstate Ice Plex, Inc. is a newly formed Not for Profit (NFP – 501(c)(3)) and we are in the beginning stage of creating a multi-use ice complex that would engage the community and kids for activities related to sports. We call this an ice plex! We have gained support from school districts, colleges, officials, large and small businesses.

WE GET HERE?
Back in 1997, Mrs. Mary Cleland began the thought with an ice rink near Caroga Lake, which was supported by the community, called Wilderness, Inc. though the funding never came forward.
In 2017, Mrs. Cleland gave Mr. Timothy Rizzo her documents. In 2021, Mr. Rizzo submitted a report to Congresswoman Elise Stefanik with a new vision. It was greatly supported and transferred to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand for funding request. Both elected officials support the project and it was short listed for funding by the US Government.
Since then, the Upstate Ice Plex has been created and moving forward while coordinating with federal and state programs.
Support References date back to 1997 and include the newest support letter from the “New York State Athletic Hockey Association”. Resolutions were passed prior, for the construction of a rink system in 1998.
