We are gratified by the strong turnout at last night’s meeting. Thank you to the community members who contributed thoughtful questions and participated in a respectful inquiry. Thank you to Alvarez & Marsal, Stroock & Stroock & Lavan and our team of consultants for their presentation and for fielding questions from the community and board members.
While our financial and legal advisors were able to provide answers to many of your questions, there remain a number of important issues which require further detailed study and analyses. Questions, for example, were raised about noise, traffic, and air and water pollution and other potential impacts. These issues and all other potential impacts will be fully assessed and the answers provided during the legally required New York State environmental review process. This open process will result in a detailed report with the answers to your questions – and many others, as well – which will be available for public scrutiny prior to any final decision about moving forward with this development.
We are at the beginning of an important process for our community and we look forward to seeing and hearing from you at Monday’s scheduled public hearing.
- Michael Rost, Town Supervisor
