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.
