The SHARP Committee, Inc. is a small, not-for-profit, Rural Preservation Company (RPC) currently serving the Towns of Shandaken, Olive, Woodstock, and Hardenburgh for the past 30 years. With a staff of no more than two or three at a time, SHARP does its best to keep up with its larger counterparts in promoting and supporting economic development and housing issues.  SHARP works in conjunction with Federal, State, and local governments to assist residents and businesses with the issues that face us during these difficult economic times.
