Group meets in support of Catamount expansion

John Mason is reporting in the Register Star 42 people gathered at Four Brothers Pizza, Mon., Oct. 20, and expressed their support for the Berkshire Mountain Club’s four-season resort proposed for the Catamount Ski Area. Susan Delamare, Catamount’s rental shop manager, lead the meeting. She said there were 10 other Catamount employees present. Delamare said the hope is to get the Copake Zoning Board of Appeals to re-vote. Last month the ZBA deadlocked two-to-two on whether to approve a special permit for the club. That vote effectively halted plans for the $80-million, four-season resort, because the law requires an affirmative vote of a majority of board members for permit approval. The group Monday, agreed to send letters voicing its opinion to the ZBA, the Town Board and the Ethics Board. If the ZBA does not choose to revisit the tied vote, developer Harry Freeman can file an Article 78 action to appeal the zoning board’s decision. The ZBA is scheduled to meet Thurs., Oct. 23.
