Jim Planck is reporting in The Daily Mail a proposal for a seasonal residential housing complex in the Platte Clove area of Hunter will be the subject of a public hearing Mon., Sept. 15 at the Hunter Elementary School. The project is called Williamsburg Residential Incorporated and includes a proposal to build five duplexes on three acres located on Dale Lane, off County Route 16. The facility is intended for use during a 10-week period in the summer months. The proposal is opposed by some based on concerns over the potential impact on Schoharie Creek water quality, noise, increased vehicular and pedestrian traffic, lighting and roadside trash. The project requires site plan approval from the Hunter Planning and Town boards, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the Army Corps of Engineers. No date has been set for the Planning Board's decision. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
