Public Hearing in Guilderland

Housing Development Seeks to
Destroy 100 acres of Pine Bush

{Author}

Wednesday, February 13 at 7:30 PM,

Town Hall in Guilderland on Route 20.

Seventy- five houses are proposed for this site, the last parcel of the largest roadless area in the Pine bush.

Three parcels make up the western section of the largest roadless area, the DeCaprio Farm site, the site of the proposed Lone Pine 7 housing development, and this 100 acre site. Located south of East Lydius Street and north of Old State Road, this area is approximately 250 acres along the Hungerkill valley and is not bisected by any roads. Roadless areas are very important to the ecosystem. Roads, even relatively unused dirt roads, can prevent plant and animal species from crossing from one side to another, thus limiting the area inhabited by plant and animal species, and limiting the biodiversity.

Come to this important public hearing and express your opposition to the construction of this housing development. For more information, please call Lynne Jackson at 434-1954.
