Birchwood Manor News
On February 6, LLC submitted before the full Planning Board of the Town of Schodack the concept engineering materials for the Birchwood Manor Independent Senior Housing Project. As expected, many area residents attended to voice their serious concerns and opposition to the Project. Most opinions pronounced during the 15 minute period for public comment were repeated from earlier public hearings, in March of 2014. Since the earlier public hearing had been suspended, and then LLC withdrew its application for building permits, we were not able to address these concerns. As the process continues during the following few months, it is hoped that we will be able to fully do so, and assure our neighbors that the Project would be a benefit to both LLC and the community.
In the meantime, the Engineer for the Town of Schodack is reviewing the submitted plans. We anticipate his critique within the next few weeks and, after a period of suggested adjustment – if any – another public hearing where questions concerning the validity of the Project could be answered. More details as they develop.
