Katie Kocijanski is reporting in The Daily Mail the Catskill Village Board's objection to the proposed purchase of the former St. Patrick’s Central Catholic High School by the Mental Health Association of Columbia-Greene Counties emerged during a public meeting, Wed., Jun. 8. At that meeting, the village board was presented with a petition declaring opposition to the project signed by 198 property owners in the Woodland Avenue neighborhood where the building is located. The petition stated the residents generally disapproved of any future use of the property which would require a building or special use permits, a variance or rezoning. Village President Heather Bagshaw said, “We are all in agreement we do not want this project to go forward.” Village Trustee Vincent Seeley suggested the planning board hold a special session to see how the property can be developed and what zoning rules are needed. The MHA is currently under contract to purchase the 10-acre site for use as a centralized facility to serve Greene County. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
