After five years, three village boards, two rezones, and one lawsuit, Stewart’s Shops has the approval it needs to build a new shop in Altamont.

Neighbors of the motel at 2019 Western Ave. were worried by “a large police presence” there on June 8, which police say “was a domestic incident with reports of shots fired inside” but investigation found “no evidence of any gunshots.”

Several citizens urged the zoning board not to allow a renovated McDonald’s to have triple the allowed signage.

An Albany County Acting Supreme Court Judge overturned the New Scotland Zoning Board of Appeals this month and told it to take another look at a use-variance application. 

In New Scotland, a 12-unit apartment building is proposed at the site of an already-converted school.

Although the coronavirus has created a lapse in funding for Westerlo’s Comprehensive Plan Committee, Supervisor William Bichteman said that budget transfers will ensure that the $5,000 lost in grant money the state has put on hold will get to the committee with town funds.

New Scotland is taking its zoning laws and placing them in one document.

“I believe we came up with a local law to support solar energy while being mindful of vistas and scenic views,” said Guilderland Supervisor Peter Barber.

The Altamont Planning Board on Monday extended the public hearing on Stewart’s Shops special-use permit application and site-plan approval for its proposed Altamont Boulevard project.

After the Stewart’s project generated interest among village residents in municipal government, Altamont’s long-time zoning board chairman was not reappointed to another five-year term.
