Nearly a year after approving the rezone of 107-109 Helderberg Ave., which triggered a lawsuit over the decision, the Altamont Village Board again voted to rezone the property.

GUILDERLAND — Stephen Cadalso was one of the residents of the ghost neighborhood in front of Crossgates Mall; he sold his home to Pyramid in December 2015. He believes Pyramid’s current plan to build a Costco in his old neighborhood is “too intense” of a use.

Next steps are for the project to go to the Albany County Planning Board, possibly  in December, then to Guilderland’s planning board for a recommendation to the zoning board, and then to the zoning board for a public hearing no earlier than Jan. 15. 

GUILDERLAND — An Albany man has been charged in five separate incidences, stealing property valued at over $11,000, according to a release from Guilderland Police.

Albany Country Club wants to build — at 300 Wormer Road — 100 single-family homes and 100 townhouses (in orange and pink), and 90 multi-residential units (in blue) on 104 acres, leaving 445 acres open. The plan will be discussed at a pre-application conference with the Development Planning Committee on Wednesday, Nov. 20, at the Guilderland Town Hall. The meeting, where heads of town departments will ask questions before the application is formally submitted, is open to the public.

Beacon Meadows will be mixed-income housing in which residents are encouraged to help one another through volunteer opportunities.
