planning board

At its February 24 meeting, the Guilderland planning board heard an appeal by Michael Arduini, who wants to add a seasonal deck at the Across the Street Pub on Western Avenue.

The planning board agreed to waive a public hearing for the Hilton LeVie barn site plan for the barn's foundation. 

In place of the LeVie barn, which has been used to store equipment by the Colonie Country Club, a lower structure is supposed to be built while the historic barn gets a new home.

NEW SCOTLAND  — The town is soliciting résumés for openings on the planning and the zoning boards; due to term-limits enacted in 2011, board members can serve only two five-year terms.

The public hearing was finally closed for a application for a kennel on Unionville-Feura Bush Road in New Scotland, after the board heard from people both in support of and against it.

One kennel was approved on Price Lane with conditions while a second, on Unionville-Feura Bush Road, had the public hearing left open.

The area along Route 156 is called "mixed-use" zoning, where residential and commercial uses are allowed. The law is set up with planning board oversight, with the aim to sustain the historic qualities of the district.

GUILDERLAND — A planning-board post that became a political hot seat in last November’s town elections was quietly filled Tuesday night with a new appointee.

By unanimous vote at its re-organizational meeting, the town board appointed Bruce Sherwin to fill out the three years left in Paul Caputo’s seven-year term.
