While apartment approvals have been the Guilderland Planning Board’s bailiwick as of late, the board is now looking at approving a 58-lot single-family cluster subdivision near the intersection of Old State and Fuller Station roads 

Placards notifying the public that the Dutch Mill Acres Townhome application is slated to be heard at an upcoming Guilderland Town Board meeting were posted on Carman Road and Lone Pine Drive, according to an affidavit filed with the town, but no meeting date is listed on the sworn statement.   

Three months ago, the town of Guilderland asked Crossgates Mall to provide it with an income statement to show it was losing income and was in need of a nearly 50-percent cut in its tax assessment; the statement was never provided. The town has now demanded reams of financial data on what the mall charges its tenants for rent and what those tenants do in annual sales. 

The public hearing on Pyramid’s proposed Rapp Road apartment project was kept open until Oct. 28, as one Guilderland resident questioned whether the Oct. 14 hearing should have even taken place. 

At its Sept. 10 regular meeting, the Knox Planning Board decided to wait until next month to weigh in on the Knox Town Board’s re-application to rezone approximately 80 acres of land at the intersection of routes 156 and 157 to a multi-use recreational district.

activists who had assembled

Guilderland Planning Board members avoided walking through the front door of town hall to avoid activists who had assembled there on Wednesday to protest the board’s vote to approve Pyramid’s Rapp Road and Western Avenue projects.

The Westerlo Town Board has extended the town’s solar and wind energy moratorium for one year, dashing the hopes of a solar developer that was planning to build on a Westerlo property.
