Town of Colonie Planning Board

Meeting on Tuesday, May 11 at 7:00 PM

Everyone who cares about the Pine Bush needs to attend!

COLONIE: Several years ago, the Town of Colonie conducted a comprehensive plan for the Town of Colonie. To ensure participation of as many residents of the Town as possible, the Town sent a survey to every resident, and then, over the space of a year or more, the Town held over 50 public meetings, asking residents for their input on the Comprehensive Plan.

Many people spoke out in favor of preservation of the Pine Bush. As a result, when the Comprehensive Plan was adopted, the Town Board also re-zoned the Pine Bush with a conservation overlay with some mild restrictions on building in the Pine Bush.

Now, wealthy land-owners in the Pine Bush want to challenge the Town of Colonie’s Comprehensive Plan and the re-zoning of Pine Bush in the Town of Colonie.

Everyone who cares about the Pine Bush is encouraged to attend this important meeting and make your voices heard on how important Pine Bush preservation is. The Town of Colonie Planning Board meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 11, and will be held at the Town of Colonie Public Operations Center, 347 Old Niskayuna Road, Latham, New York 12110
