As part of an initiative to restore young forest habitats, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation discussed areas they will clearcut and make suitable for such habitats at the Margaret Burke Wildlife Management Area in Knox. 

A lawsuit from Altamont against Knox, challenging the assessment, is expected to go to court soon.

Blighted properties taken on by the Albany County Land Bank can be found in suburban and rural areas like New Scotland or the Helderberg Hilltowns.

In Knox, furniture and other unwanted items are often left at the transfer station. The town is now seeking a partnership with the Capital Region Furniture Bank, which would take some of the furniture and bring it to those in need.

The decision comes after months of multiple site tests, public hearings, and arguments for and against the 120-foot tower.
