Northern Barrell Brewing on North Main Street has said it will be opening for take-out on April 15 while the owners of two proposed restaurants and a coffee shop were recently before the village planning commission with their latest project updates. 

The Berne Town Board appeared highly critical of the tax district proposal at its meeting last month, suggesting alternative solutions to fund the unsound Helderberg Lake Dam.

During the March 9 New Scotland Town Board meeting, the husband of the owner of the Something Olde Something New shop in Stonewell Plaza said his wife’s shop had flooded in November because of ongoing construction work at the development project to the rear of the plaza.

At the March 22 meeting of the Guilderland Industrial Development Agency, board members were informed that Airgas USA had declined to accept a $240,000 sales-tax break the company sought and was granted for its three-acre liquid argon gas storage and distribution facility in the Northeastern Industrial Park.

“We’re in that time period between when the ground can be worked on,” said Guilderland Supervisor Peter Barber, before the April 1 deadline after which no trees can be cut. That deadline is set by the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation to protect the northern long-eared bat.

On Wednesday, attorney for Save the Pine Bush Todd Ommen contended he was before the judges because his “client finds itself dismissed from this case without any court having heard the substance of its claims.”

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. 

GUILDERLAND —  WS Development will assume management, operation, and majority ownership of Stuyvesant Plaza, Ed Swyer, president of Stuyvesant Plaza Inc., announced in a release on Wednesday.
