Town Board Minutes 10/5/05
REGULAR MEETING OF THE TOWN BOARD
TOWN OF GLENVILLE
OCTOBER 5, 2005
AT THE GLENVILLE MUNICIPAL CENTER
18 GLENRIDGE ROAD, GLENVILLE, NEW YORK


Present:        Supervisor Clarence W. Mosher, Councilmen Peter V. Russo, Mark A. Quinn, and Robert E. Bailey

Absent: Councilman James W. Denney

                Supervisor Mosher called the meeting to order at 7:30 PM.  Councilman Russo gave the Invocation and John Jankowy was asked to lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

                Supervisor Mosher asked the Town Clerk, Linda C. Neals, to call the roll.  Everyone was present and accounted for except for Councilman James W. Denney, who was out of town.

Town Councilman Reports:

                Councilman Russo – “Since August 22nd, I have attended all of the budget hearings with the department heads and that was approximately eleven meetings.

                During this process each department head presents what they feel they will need and present us with a cost to satisfy that need to operate their departments during the coming year.  I might add that only one department had a zero increase, all other showed increases from 3% to 69% and let me explain the 69%.  It was due to equipment totaling almost one million dollars which would not be paid through a budget item expense rather it would be under a bond.

                The tentative budget being presented tonight only reflects conditions such as mentioned here but still has a lot more work to be done and therefore should not be considered a benchmark for next year.”

                Councilman Bailey –“I have been in touch with John Brust of Delaware Engineering and we have set up a schedule whereby I will receive regular briefings on the progress on the waste water treatment study and I will include them in my future reports.”

                Supervisor Mosher – “Item number 6 is a public hearing to hear all persons interested in the proposed local law that would establish a moratorium on the submission of any new residential subdivision applications on lands zoned Rural Residential and Agricultural.”

                Supervisor Mosher opened the public hearing at 7:37 p.m.

                Kevin Corcoran, Town Planner – “This is a proposal sponsored by Councilman Denney, it involves a proposed local law that would establish a moratorium on any new residential subdivision applications in areas zoned rural residential and agricultural.  Basically that is 55% of the geographic area of the Town of Glenville; essentially everything west of Spring Road and north of Route 5.  It would not apply to subdivision applications that are already in the pipe line as it were or under review and what we mean by under review is any application that has already gone through our environmental conservation commission.  Subdivisions that are presently in front of our Planning and Zoning Commission they would not be subject to this moratorium.

                The duration that’s proposed is until the end of January, January 31, 2006 so it would be a three or fourth month moratorium with the purpose being to allow the Town to initiate our open space plan to conduct an inventory and rank our open space properties to establish an open space committee and begin work on the plan itself.

                Councilman Denney also mentioned that we may end up refining the area that we are looking to establish the open space planning priorities so whether this moratorium would be extended or not we don’t know but we may be focusing more perhaps on the West Glenville Hamlet area.  Time will tell as we get into the process itself.”

                Councilman Quinn – “Kevin, as you know part of the rational for doing this is so we can get a better foresight on which way we want our planning to go in West Glenville and what direction we want to take out there.  In your opinion, you have the most expertise with this thing; do you think four months is giving us enough time to get the open space initiative up and running and to really contemplate this thing effectively?”

                Mr. Corcoran – “To get it up and running, yes, to accomplish an actual plan, no, that is a multiyear plan for most municipalities.  It would get us going and we could certainly do the inventory identifying and ranking of properties that would be about as far as we could go during that period.”

                Councilman Quinn – “So you are not necessarily suggesting a longer term on the moratorium than this?”

                Mr. Corcoran – “No”

                Hugh Jenkins, 1761 West Glenville Road – “I am going to presume to speak on behalf of the many West Glenville residents here and of the 81 people who signed a petition expressing their concern about development in the West Glenville area, that is 96% of the people that we asked who signed the petition.

                That was particularly about the Burger development, which we realize is not going to be considered as part of this moratorium, but what we hope is that if such a moratorium goes through other communities would be spared what we have had to go through, which is long nights of talking about what to do about going through zoning laws on all of the things that are part of the participatory part of process of a government, but which are a great deal of strain on people who have jobs and other things.  What we are hoping is that a moratorium could be implemented because for us it is the best means to allow the what was put ion the 1990 Town of Glenville Master Plan to be considered and implemented, that is over and over again in the Master Plan.  It says that West Glenville area and the Glenville area in general contains many unique rural open spaces and contains many unique rural hamlets that are disappearing across this state and in the town itself and that these areas must be preserved to maintain the character of Glenville as a whole so what we are asking for in supporting this moratorium is not simply that our back yard be kept pristine but that Glenville’s yard be kept pristine.  Those of us who live out there will tell you that people drive out through our area and I am not just speaking about our area, I am talking about Wolfhollow, I am talking about Glenville Hill area, people drive out there, people hike out there, people bike out there, people come out there because it is unique to that area and it is disappearing rapidly.

                So, what we are asking for is that this moratorium be implemented so that an open space committee formed and that it’s suggestions be forwarded to you and to the appropriate people and that those suggestions be considered and we hope implemented.  We think it is the best way to implement what the master plan calls for and we hope that if necessary this moratorium can be extended either in time or in reach so that what again what we have gone through over the last couple of years in West Glenville can be avoided by other people in the Town of Glenville and that serious and strong provisions can be put into the Town’s laws and by laws and rules and regulations that will protect the last remaining open spaces that exist in this town.”

                Councilman Quinn – “Only because the numbers open the door is a minuscule amount but did people give a rational of the 4% that didn’t want to sign?  Did they indicate why?”

                Mr. Jenkins – “Two people?  I would rather protect their privacy and not say why they didn’t.  They had reasons.”

                Councilman Quinn – “Well you are not identifying them.”

                Mr. Jenkins – “Some people were interested parties shall we say and didn’t want to get involved for that reason.  They supported us they just didn’t want their name on a petition.”

                Councilman Bailey – “I appreciate your speaking.  I understand where you are coming from I am a landowner not in West Glenville but in that area and I appreciate the open space.  I am concerned even today I was approached by a resident who wanted advice on how to create a rather large subdivision out in our current farm fields so I understand what you are talking about the stress.”

                Supervisor Mosher – “Ever since I have been Supervisor I’ve wished that we could protect Wolfhollow Road.  It is a very unique area of flora and I would like to see Wolfhollow blocked right off if we had another way over the hill.  Blocked off so that we didn’t have people trashing Wolfhollow Road, we didn’t have people desecrating Wolfhollow Road.”

                Mr. Jenkins – “I would also like to add that it is not just preserving open spaces it is also preserving agricultural lands.  There were five farms identified in the master plan of 1990 and it is now down to two.  There are people at this meeting and people in the area who are interested in starting farms, horse farms, organic farms, hobby farms.  If we want to preserve the character of Glenville as a whole I think we have to do something to allow people who want to work the land to work the land.  We don’t want to see happen what happened to Clifton Park and other places and it is happening in Southern Saratoga County to happen in Glenville.  There are a lot of people who want to preserve the land to farm it and to work it.  That is just as important to me and again I am presuming to speak for the people here although it is sort of presumptuous of me but I think it is fair to say that there are a lot of people who want to work the land.  I think Glenville can make a name for itself by helping people who want to do this.  It would be a really nice balance to what we have right out side this building, local produce.”

                Richard Harris, 48 Dublin Drive, Niskayuna – “You probably wondering what I am doing here tonight, for full disclosure purposes I am a candidate for County Legislature for Niskayuna and Glenville but I come to you tonight as a professional land use planner.  I was Kevin’s counterpart in Niskayuna and over there it was too late.  By the time I got there we were not in a situation that you’re at now.

                My background I am a land use planner with the State of New York Canal Corporation, I previously served as Senior Planner and Deputy Director of the Hudson River Valley Greenway and as Niskayuna Town Planner and that is what I want to speak about tonight.  I worked up and down the Hudson Valley for the last five years and this was not a strange setting for me to be at.  You have towns all over the Hudson Valley looking at development projects and then going oh oh what do we do.  Every project turned into a polarizing issue with the town board or what ever it was at the time, a planning board left with a zoning ordinance that they looked the people and said “sorry it is aloud” and that went on for several years and over the last decade not because of myself while I did work on the font line with the Hudson Valley Greenway in helping communities decide whether they need moratoriums and what to do from there, you had the loss of open space.  You’ve got counties like Orange County, which is probably very similar to where Schenectady County and Glenville is today.  You have NYC development pressures, you’ve got people that have you’ve got people that have zoning ordinances, comprehensive plans that are ten, twenty, forty years out of date.  Development pressures come in and before you know it the space is gone.

                I am not here to tell you what to do with your space in Glenville, I’m not here to tell West Glenville what they should and shouldn’t do, but your taking an important pause in a development process to take a deep breath and not make the decision on your own or leave it up to a zoning ordinance that might be fifty years out of date but hear from citizens because let’s be frank you guys are elected by the citizens they will throw you out if you don’t do what they want.  You’ve got to give them time to tell you what they want and in the next few months hopefully you’ll begin to hear that.

                The other reason it is important to take a pause and I don’t consider myself predevelopment or anti-development but what I saw on the Hudson River Valley in many of the communities where it wasn’t too late by the end of the process the developers appreciated it.  Why?  Because when they came before the Planning Board the rules were clear, they didn’t read rules, pay for engineers and architects, design subdivisions, show up to planning board meetings and get hours of controversy and nasty headlines and a polarized community where I saw signs on peoples lawns all over the place.  They got a clear and precise description, hopefully we’ll achieve in the next few months or if you need to go longer, they would get a clear picture of what the community wanted to see so when the people that were part of that process that designed that zoning ordinance got development they already had a say in what it was going to look like and sure there were some people that say preserve everything, not in my backyard, but at least this process gives them a voice in updating, whether it’s doing an open space program, deciding what should be preserved, maybe you will go after grants or get other funds in some manner to preserve some of the lands that you mention Supervisor.  It gives the development community an idea of what they want.  Yes, I am sure there’s people here or in the community that are concerned or upset that they are not going to be able to sell their land in the next few months, not going to be able to make the money that they feel that they deserve after years of working hard on their land, but after that uncomfortable pause that they might feel you’ll get a clearer idea of what you community wants, you’ll give them a chance to speak and if you need to go a little longer, personally you may need to go a little longer.  My experience in the Hudson River Valley was many times there were six months, one year moratoriums that need to be extended because of the outpouring of concern from the community and an attempt by the elected officials to hear from everyone and make sure it is a process because most of these people will be here after you are off the board and they are the ones that are going to then come to future town board meetings.  You give them a chance to say and I am not here to say what and what shouldn’t be preserved, that is for them to decide and ultimately you to enact.

                You are doing a good thing tonight.  As a professional planner, certified by the American Planning Association, this fits right into the pattern of other areas of the state and country of how they are giving the citizens a voice in the future and the community.  I know it is too late for some developments but you still have land left.  Niskayuna where I worked didn’t.  We had some preserves and we had some lands preserved but if you guys are following the Schenectady Gazette and the Times Union and the news report we have had a controversy for the last two years in a part of Niskayuna near where I live called the Lorie Drive issue.  The people were promised, twelve years ago, that a road wouldn’t go through they thought it was a cul-de-sac when they bought their houses.  The Town Board never took the next step.  They had a park land budget that was funded by developer’s payments in lieu of taxes for subdivisions so instead of building parkland the Planning Board determined that there wasn’t a need and over a decade they built up funds where the developers had to pay to the parkland budget.  Ten years ago the town could have bought the land for a small price to fulfill a promise that they made to those people and over the last two years there has been nothing but controversy, nothing but headlines regarding a developer coming in, it is perfectly allowed in the subdivision ordinance, the people they were promised something twelve, fourteen years ago, the Town Board never did the next step to stop it, they had the money and it turned into an explosive issue in the community.

                This is your chance to prevent a controversy every time a development comes up, yes there will always be people that “not in my backyard” but at least you will be providing a process for them to air their opinions and you will be able to develop a plan that lasts way beyond your terms in office.”

                Doug Vitus, 163 Toureuna Road – “I can agree with probably some of these people that are talking about open space and what not.  But I am in a situation where I would probably want a minor subdivision to… after years of working on property maybe able to sell, sell not everything but subdivide a couple of lots, build another house on top of the hill on property and sell some other property.  I can understand all of their feelings about this major subdivision, I wouldn’t want to see nothing like that myself or like you were talking about Wolfhollow, I know what you are talking about where they are always throwing trash and stuff out there.”

                Councilman Bailey – “Since nobody else raised their hand I and I think everybody else on the Board received a letter from an Ann White, 3602 Waters Road and just for the purpose of identifying in the record she is in favor of putting a moratorium in place so as to allow time to develop the open space plan properly.”

                Erin Hutulsky, 1761 West Glenville Road – “I would just like to talk to you a little bit about one of the things I was thinking about today.  I work on a farm, I am on a two year apprenticeship at an organic farm in Greenwich and Washington County is full of farms and we have been doing a lot of research recently and the organic food market is growing at about 28% a year whereas the regular food market is growing at about 2% a year and it is a pretty viable living out there.  A lot of people don’t work except for farming out there and it is pretty neat to see people who have a few months off in the winter although they work so hard in the summer.

                I was thinking about some of the animals that I will miss if this part or Glenville is developed.  We have coyotes, bobcats, barn owls we have great horn owls, we have red tailed hawks.  Lots of bird life, lots of plant life, lots of flora, I have been learning about edible foods and mushrooms.  I have heard that there is a moose.

                I am a little bit concerned about sprawl.  The amount of money that this town would be making off of a few little developments is nothing compared to the future problems that might arise is we don’t have anymore green space left.”

                Shauna King, 236 Pine Avenue – “I grew up in a town called Freehold, way south of here, which has more cows than people.  My husband grew up out west near Buffalo and also grew up on a farm himself.  After we met and moved back to this area, after living for a brief time in Revena we did live in Clifton Park.  One of the reasons we moved out of Clifton Park was because of the tremendous crowd of people and we really weren’t thrilled with that.  We moved to Glenville out of the difference from Clifton Park and I agree that Glenville should not be like Clifton Park however being that my husband and I are more in the suburban part of Glenville right now and we are actually in the process of hopefully purchasing a piece of land in the West Glenville area to pursue further maybe doing our own small crops and hopefully having some chickens and all of that fun stuff.

                However our purchasing of the property has possibly been put on hold because of this moratorium.  What we are applying for would hopefully be only a minor subdivision not a major subdivision by being a single home.  I just want to speak on that that someone that has been in those circumstances and has been trying to move into those areas to basically to be able to live the life I want.  The piece of property that we are trying to purchase would be about four acres and I would never ever imagine any of those four acres ever selling them to anyone.  Those four acres of land would be mine if I would ever be able to have that property.”

                John Scheib, 3024 Waters Road – “I was just wondering if Kevin Corcoran could give us just a brief overview of how the process is going to happen in terms of involving by the community and by the town in terms of … exploring the moratorium how that goes and maybe kind of what you are expecting to have done by the end of January.”

                Kevin Corcoran – “We are not exactly sure of the structure yet.  We have more than enough volunteers who have signed up to work on an open space plan.  Over thirty is the latest count.  That is too many we can’t have thirty people working on a plan.  We are looking at the possibility of establishing sub-committees.  We will have a steering committee of seven or nine people and then establish sub-committees to work in maybe in geographic areas of the Town.  They can focus on those areas or topical areas like agriculture, scenic views.

                So, the first step would be to establish this committee and right on the heels of that would be to do the open space inventory.  Basically to determine what properties we have, what is the amount of vacant acreage and then to rank or prioritize those properties based on different qualities.  There are different ranking systems that we can use.

                That is probably the most we could do during a three and one half period but at least we will be moving down the road.  We will know where our important open space properties are by the time the moratorium expires and then we can focus a little bit more at that point.”

                Arkley Mastro, Town Attorney – “From a legal point of view a moratorium is essentially a local law that amends the current zoning ordinance and it prohibits developments of a certain scope.  A moratorium shouldn’t be any broader from a legal stand point than absolutely essential to accomplish the objectives of the moratorium, which is to explore an open space plan.  Many municipalities have provided relief valves in the moratorium which would allow minor subdivisions of four lots or less or two lots or less.  That allows people who want to subdivide one or two lots perhaps to a family member or someone else to be underneath the radar of the moratorium to allow those to take place while the town still studies the broader picture of open space.  That is the reason for the pubic hearing tonight to adopt a local law you have to a public hearing for public input.”

                No one else wished to speak; Supervisor Mosher closed the public hearing at 8:00 pm.

                Supervisor Mosher opened the Privilege of the Floor.
                The following people exercised the privilege of the floor:

                Barbara Jets, 1734 Vley Road

                No one else wished to speak; Supervisor Mosher closed the privilege of the floor.

Supervisor’s Comments to the Board

                Supervisor Mosher – “As Councilman Russo said our Comptroller, George Phillips and I and Councilman Russo worked long and hard with department heads on department budgets.  We’ve got a tentative budget and now we have to prepare a preliminary budget and then a final budget and there is still a lot of work to do.”
