Kinderhook village planning board votes on three projects
Jul 08, 2019 12:29 am
Emilia Teasdale reports for the Columbia Paper that the Kinderhook Village Planning Board approved the Three Sisters Tavern and a change to gas pumps at the Route 9 Stewart’s store, and denied a special use permit for a bed and breakfast on Broad Street at a June 25 meeting. The Three Sisters Tavern will be in the basement and first floor of the Old Dutch Inn on Broad Street, with plans for a hotel on the other floors of the building that will have to be approved later. The Stewart’s on Route 9 was approved to move the gas pumps to the northeast side of the current site with a larger canopy over the pumps, and LED lights. The store will also add a bike rack and picnic tables next to the Albany-Hudson Electric Trail, a walking and biking trail being built by the state. The bed and breakfast on Broad Street proposed by Paul Calcagno was denied, however, as board members asked him to move picnic tables away from the bagel shop next to his building, and establish setbacks on the property. The 5-0 vote to deny the application means Calcagno will have to reapply or he go to the Village Board to have the zoning changed. Read more about this story in the Columbia Paper.
