WOW! I don’t know what I was expecting from tonight’s meeting but this was NOT IT. I was so excited as the meeting went on that I took TERRIBLE notes, but here is what I’ve gathered in a nutshell…because of the ILLEGAL logging that was done between November 1 and January 4 (when a stop work order was finally issued, but only after repeated phone calls from area residents to Building Inspector Joel Petrus), the ability of the builder to do the development has been SET BACK. WAY BACK.
My understanding is that – the environmental studies that were done by the builder are now completely moot as the terrain has been completely altered by the logging. I can’t speak for what is going on in anyone else’s head – but if I was that developer I’d be … unhappy.
I would like to send out a big hug and a kiss and a THANK YOU to the landowner shot himself in the foot with a double barrel shotgun full of GREED.
Manor Estates is listed to be reviewed tonight. Please note that there has been a lot of activity regarding Manor Estates over the past few months and things have been amped up over this past winter. My gut feeling is that sometime in the next month or two there will be a public hearing at which point we will have to deal with the reality of this development being pushed through by the current administration.
Please try and be present for tonight’s meeting. It starts at 7pm and will conclude at 11pm. I will be at the front of Town Hall in a pink t-shirt that says “Got Traffic” with the www.keepfishkillbeautiful.com website on it :).
