Supervisor's Report through 8/25/2015

From the desk of:

               Keith A. Langley, Supervisor

                                      Town of East Greenbush


It’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of August and school will be starting up soon.  Summer has kept us all very busy throughout the Town.  I would like to congratulate Jessica, the camp staff and all our camp families for an incredibly successful year at our Town Summer Camp.  I’ve talked to many families who have said that their child had so much fun this year.  It means a lot, especially when we see all the work that Jessica and the staff put into organizing and running the program each year.

Coming up on Saturday, August 29th, we have the East Greenbush Town Festival (formerly known as Saturday in the Park).  The fun will kick off at 11AM in Onderdonk and Hampton Manor Parks.  There are fun events planned for all ages, over 70 vendors.  We hope for beautiful weather so that we can end the night at 8PM with a fireworks show!   We hope that you will all come out to join us.

This week wraps up our Music in the Park concert series held in Onderdonk Park.  Even though we got off to a rainy start, we managed to rearrange schedules to make sure all four bands got to play.  If you haven’t been yet, be sure to stop by to see Carmine Dio on Tuesday, August 25th from 6-8PM.

Our Department of Public Works employees have been hard at work around Town filling pot holes and prepping the roads to be paved.  The roads that have been paved are very nice to drive over.  The construction crews are still hard at work at the Waste Water Treatment Plant.  We’re still on target for a late November completion date.  We thank everyone for their patience and tolerance this summer, we understand that there have been unpleasant odors, but we’re working hard to minimize the smell.

In July the Town Board unanimously passed the Planned Development District (PDD) extension resolution.  This resolution provided the Board until December 2, 2015 to review the PDD applications to determine if they would be granted further extension or if they would have to start the process over again.  Turns out a few days was all that was needed for the Vision Hotels project to get their building permit and prepare to break ground.  The construction crews are currently clearing the site of trees and brush.  While they haven’t broken ground yet, they have scheduled a pre-construction meeting for this week so they can discuss all the fine details of the construction process.  The Vision Hotels project is a 100 room hotel that is being built on the Tempel Farms property.  We look forward to sharing details of the progress with you as they develop over the next few months!

These are just a few of the areas that the Town is showing progress.  Each day we are hard at work moving the Town forward, overcoming obstacles and roadblocks as they occur.  I am grateful for the staff I have for their dedication to their job and the Town.

I sincerely hope that you each enjoy the last few days of summer before school starts.  And to all the students returning to school, whether moving up or continuing their journey, best of luck, we look forward to the great things you can all achieve if you just set your mind to it.
