At a raucous meeting, the Knox Town Board agreed unanimously to hold a hearing on five potential new business districts, overriding a planning board recommendation.

Zoning board alternate Stuart Reese is a retired math teacher, while new member of the Guilderland Board of Assessment Review David Payton worked for the State Education Department.

One of three assisted-living facilities that may soon come to Guilderland now goes back to the town’s planning board to work out any remaining issues with the site plan.

Cumberland Farms hopes to build a second convenience store and gas station in Guilderland.

A town that wants to guard its rural character seems to be of two minds about whether to create additional business districts within its borders.

One of the larger historical homes in Guilderland has been rezoned from single-family residential to business non-retail professional, to help the owners, who have been trying to sell it for years, find a buyer.

Faced with two controversial planning issues this year that brought crowds to village board meetings, Voorheesville now has a 14-member committee that is working on a comprehensive land-use plan, which the village board hopes will be completed within a year.

There may be three new assisted-living facilities in Guilderland’s future.

As construction continues on a visitors’ center at Thacher Park, neighbors have grown concerned that the lights at the site — lit for the safety of construction workers at night — could become a regular feature on the otherwise unilluminated Helderberg escarpment.

KNOX — When the Helderberg Rod & Gun club received  land on Quay Road in 1958 as a gift from  a family who were members, it seemed the perfect spot.  It was  a rural and largely wooded location, thinly populated.  It still is today, but now the land opposite the club  has some large homes.
