Logan Weiss is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media the Kinderhook Village Board will hold a public hearing next month on the proposed land acquisition for use as part of the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail in the village. The half-acre of land, located off Sunset Avenue, is currently owned by Samascott Orchards. Village Mayor James C. Dunham said the hearing will be held prior to the board vote on the land purchase. If the purchase is approved, the Hudson River Valley Greenway, the organization planning the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail, will compensate the village for the land and fence construction. The Electric Trail is part of the Empire State Trail, a 750-mile biking and walking pathway expected to be completed in 2020. The Electric Trail will connect the Capital Region to the Hudson Valley, through Schodack, East Greenbush, Nassau, Valatie, Kinderhook, Stockport and Hudson. “If the purchase is approved, we can acquire the property in a couple weeks.” Dunham said. The village board public hearing on the land purchase will be held 7 p.m., Wed., Oct. 10, at Village Hall, 6 Chatham Street, Kinderhook. Read the full story at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
