During a recent town meeting, while updating board members on various infrastructure projects in town, Guilderland Supervisor Peter Barber said the Carman Road sidewalk project was unlikely to be completed this year. But those circumstances recently changed. 

New Scotland resident Paul Steinkamp said the inherent beauty of the area surrounding his home makes just driving along Picard Road a pleasant experience. But the road’s pastoral setting also attracts pedestrians, bicyclists, dog walkers, and a high school track team, which can become an issue because of its curves and up-and-down speed limits.

James Coffin was elected to the Voorheesville School Board at least eight times, most recently in 2021. He won his first election in 1989.

Over the past few months, a series of authorization votes and million-dollar arbiter decisions appear to have put the Albany County Rail Trail Bridge project back on track — albeit with a price tag far greater than originally anticipated.

New Voorheesville School Board President Rachel Gilker said the board had “several options legally available” to fill a vacancy.

The Voorheesville School Board was presented with the project at its Aug. 17 meeting. 

Jeff Mirel, a principal with Rosenblum, told the Guilderland Town Board at its Aug. 16 meeting, “As the project design has evolved, you know, we found it would be more efficient to construct a single building than two buildings and reduce the overall unit count, but include more units in the single building to achieve efficiencies.”

After hearing over a dozen people speak on Aug. 10, the New Scotland Town Board decided to table a vote on Proposed Local Law C of 2022.

The Guilderland Planning Board on Aug. 10 approved a site plan for the United Group of Troy for 192 apartments and 30 townhomes, where the largest change compared to an early proposal from the Pyramid Companies is the shift of two five-story buildings approximately 300 feet to the north of Westmere Terrace and 150 feet from the neighborhood property line. 

Representatives for Ron Kay were before the New Scotland Planning Board recently seeking approval for modifications to an existing site plan for the Grove at Maple Point development on Route 85A.
