The work, described by Supervisor Peter Barber during the March 15 town board meeting as “mostly grub work” to get “ready for more heavy duty construction,” was due to start on Tuesday. 

The Guilderland Zoning Board of Appeals approved 352 square feet of signage where the town’s zoning code allows only 150 square feet; it also approved seven signs for a total of three businesses when two signs per business is allowed. 

A public hearing is set for April 5 at 7 p.m., on a proposed local law that would allow marijuana retail dispensaries in Guilderland.

Guilderland Councilwoman Laurel Bohl summed up the issue: “Where does a resident go who wants to get a determination made about if a permit’s being violated or not? And if the [zoning-enforcement officer] gives an answer that seems very inconsistent with the facts, how does she appeal that or go from there?”

The four village officials running on March 15 were unopposed for their seats.

VOORHEESVILLE — Jim Duncan was of a different time, his daughters said, where community was everything, and you knew and cared for your neighbors.

On March 7, representatives from Mosaic Associates Architects updated school board members with a proposal to build a bus garage on the grounds of Voorheesville Elementary School. 

VOORHEESVILLE — The owner of a popular Bethlehem pizzeria has come forward as the likely buyer of 112 Maple Ave., once the home of Smith’s Tavern.

Guilderland zoning Chairman Thomas Remmert said it’s the largest variance request he’s heard since he’s been on the board.

Longtime incumbent trustees Richard Berger and John Stevens will face no opposition, nor will Kaitlin Wilson, who was appointed to the village board in July to fill the seat of Richard Straut, who took over for Robert Conway as village mayor that same month.
