Supervisor's Report Through 4/3/2014


From the desk of:

                Keith A. Langley, Supervisor

                                     Town of East Greenbush

It looks like a beautiful start to the month of April; let’s hope that winter is finally over!  In my last Supervisor’s report I brought exciting news about new businesses that will be coming to Routes 9&20, and I’m happy to announce a couple more.  The Columbia Café is now open for breakfast and lunch.  The Columbia Café is located near Jazzercise in the plaza at 179 Columbia Turnpike. 

Opening by the end of April, just in time for the warm summer months is Dave’s Dog House, a burger and hot dog stand.  People keep saying that what 9&20 needs is a place to get a good burger, and we will soon have one!  Dave’s Dog House will be located in the Price Chopper Plaza in the former coffee stand.   We wish both new businesses good luck in their endeavors and we look forward to visiting often.

To continue with monthly updates on the Waste Water Treatment Plant project, construction trailers have been set up and all contractors are ready to get to work.  We are still on track for completion by the end of the year.

In addition to calls about new businesses, our offices have been inundated with phone calls regarding conditions of the roads throughout Town.  We have heard from New York State Department of Transportation that work on local roads throughout the Capital District is commencing on May 5th and will be completed by this fall.  Our Department of Public Works is also taking necessary actions to make sure Town deadlines are met.  We hope that this summer travel between Routes 4 and the Routes 9 & 20 split in Castleton will be much smoother for everyone.   Concerning Town roads that need repairs, DPW will be taking care of those issues as soon as weather permits.

If you’re on Facebook, be sure to “Like” The Town of East Greenbush Community and Recreation Department page so you can stay up to date on all upcoming Town events.  Department Director Jessica Lansing updates it daily to assure information is out there! Visit soon to see when this year’s Easter Egg Hunt, Park Clean Up day, Muffins for Mom and most importantly, Town Summer Camp information.  There are some great events planned.  Make sure you don’t miss them!

As we get more detailed updates about road construction, we will be sure to post it.  As always, my door is always open if you have any questions.

Take Care.

East Greenbush- Site Design Guidelines

In 2013 the Town Board, with funding from the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC), established an advisory committee to help develop design guidelines for the Columbia Turnpike and U.S. Route 4 corridors. This initiative is intended to continue the Town’s effort to transform these corridors into thriving community spaces that provide residents and businesses with safe and sustainable places to live, work, and play. The advisory committee is charged with developing community-based site design strategies and to provide recommendations to the Town Board. To date, the advisory committee has hosted two public workshops, a property owners focus group meeting, and interviewed may stakeholders in order to maximize public input. Below are links to the draft plan and April 7th public workshop presentation. The advisory committee is asking all that are interested to provide their feedback prior to finalizing the plan.
