Emilia Teasdale is reporting in the Columbia Paper Habitat for Humanity appeared again last week before the Valatie village Zoning Board of Appeals to correct a variance granted in December to replace a two-family house the organization purchased on the corner of Main and New streets. The village Planning Board also attended the meeting prepared to vote on the final plans for the project. The Planning Board had concerns about the Habitat plan, which calls for new two-family house to replace the existing one. Each of the two attached homes will be about 1,400 square feet and will be owned by two separate families selected by Habitat. After two rounds of voting, the Planning Board finally approved the plan with reservations. Habitat representatives present invited anyone concerned with the plan to become part of the process. Habitat now has the approvals it needs for the project. The existing structure will be demolished and construction will begin this summer. Read the full story in the Columbia Paper.
