The Gazette has published another letter from a longtime Alplaus resident, Kathy Boyle with some thoughts on the development. Thanks to Kathy for writing, and the Gazette for letting our opinions be heard!
Great letter posted to The Gazette from Judy Harris - focus on the flood issues on the property. Even if there are garages under the apartments, any flood threat (which is imminent based on the history) on the property will be a massive disruption and liability to the community. Content below!
Due to vehement community opposition, the Van Antwerp/Balltown Rd. Proposal has been withdrawn! Advocacy works!
Big thanks to Jeff Madej who took the time to share his views with the editor of the Schenectady Gazette about saving Alplaus!
