Hudson Parks LLC Letchworth Proposal : Too Little Information, Too Late
In May 2022, the Town of Stony Point Town Council engaged a Memorandum of Understanding with Hudson Park LLC to allow them exclusive rights to develop the Letchworth property. ( May 10, 2022 Presentation )
The proposition on the ballot in November is to allow the Town Council to negotiate the sale, and sell the property without any further public input.
The details of the project were presented on October 12th by Glen Vetromile at the Clubhouse at Patriot Hills. There was a large crowd, who had a lot of questions, which he did is best to answer but there were still a lot of loose ends.
I am not the type of person that wants to be against something. I find it especially difficult if it seems any individual is against everything. But, I find it wrong that the "full" details, which were still thin, were presented to the public merely 3 weeks before the vote. It is also my opinion that the number of proposed units to be built is too high density for our town. On November 8th, I will vote against this proposition, as I believe the way it's currently presented is tantamount to providing a blank check to the Town Council.
In looking into the contractor, I think it's important that people know that there have been a number of litigations and falling outs between partners of his, which is concerning.
