24 New Karner Road Senior Living Facility – Speak out on July 13th

Dear All,

In two weeks, the Town of Guilderland will hold an in-person hearing on Pine Bush Senior Living PUD-24 New Karner Road on Tuesday July 13. The Town Board meeting begins at 7 PM

This project was approved in 2015, but, it appears that the developer never broke ground. See the Altamont Enterprise article:

Here is the site plan:

Here are the documents related to the hearing:

I cannot find the Environmental Assessment Form or the Environmental Impact Statement (which I assume one must have been written).

This is a really large site – 50 acres plus or minus. However, the developer is proposing to give 39.1 acres to the Town of Guilderland and build on the land closest to route 155.

This will be the first in-person Town Board meeting in the Town of Guilderland since the pandemic. I hope people will be able to attend and voice their opposition to any more development in the Pine Bush.

Thanks so much,
Lynne Jackson
