– Ask to Vote No on Touhey

Charles Touhey is back with his proposal to construct an office complex in the Pine Bush. So far, Save the Pine Bush has sucessfully stopped Mr. Touhey from building his offices since 1988. We hope to make it permanent!

The Common Council will vote soon on this Pine Bush proposal. Your calls made all of the difference in the world for the Drumlin Fields proposal; six Common Council members voted against it. Unfortunately, we needed one more vote to defeat Drumlin Fields, but it was your calls which resulted in the six votes.

Please call. This 12-parcel in the Pine Bush is important. It is adjacent to land already owne by the State and set aside as Preserve. The Preserve is small enough already, and does not need another office complex for a neighbor.

If you do not know who your Common Council member is, call the Albany City Clerk at 434-5090. Please be sure to also call Tom Nitido, chair of the Health and Environment Committee of the Common Council at 453-9052.
