Before taking a vote on this, our City Council should ask a few more questions....like show us your "books".

RR, I find the Rt. 41 & 20 comments to be most interesting. Can you please shed some more light on this one? I did a little bit of research online but came up with nothing.

The rest.. whatever.

Thanks,

There is a parcel of land, owned by HSV on RT 20, that is between the old car dealership and a residential property. There is another parcel of land, on RT 41 between two residential properties which is across from their main pasture, both are routinely hayed. After the sewer line was put in for Interprint and Richmond Shores HSV, as part of long term planning for land use examined what it would take to develop those properties for commercial and residential use. Would condos and an small "mall" work, should they partner with a developer to gain revenue. Could they build rental/vacation units, should they sell the parcels, might they build living quarters for future projects and a "campus" for HSV.
One plan, includes moving buildings from a Shaker museum in NY onto a portion of the pasture land.
The "favored" plan seemed to be the one where they built sort of a mixed use parcel with some light shopping and condo units on the larger parcel of land and sold the other smaller land. I think the economy has put most of these plans on hold.

You are welcome, but notice that there have been no replies. I find it curious that she called me a liar, but now is silent when more facts are presented, and it isn't like she hasn't read the response.

I don't know REPORTER, but my gut feeling is that his info is credible. It is certainly something that our City Council should look into.

But what I find disturbing is that Spear denied these allegations from REPORTER in another thread.

Much of what she says is questionable. Personally, I can't see where housing and feeding 6 students in Pittsfield will make a dent in our financial situation.

But the bottom line is this....if SHV is sitting on a potential money maker, they have gall to ask Pittsfield for any money!

If you live in Hancock, you get free access to the village. If 43% of the village and its tax exempt land is in Pittsfield, shouldn't people that live in Pittsfield get in for free or very close to free?
If 53% of its land in in hancock and that gets people in for free, 47% of its land in Pittsfield should get people from Pittsfield in for 94% off.

I too am now curious as to what their plans are for the land and to see what money they are wasting on what. I remember a few years ago they were in the red and cut all kinds of costs and got rid of many of the animals.

Why doesn't she answer? I think this should be brought up at the city council meeting

I also asked her on another thread how many permanent, full time jobs will be created for Pittsfield residents from this proposed project? She did not answer me.This money she is asking for is intended to create full time employment for residents of Pittsfield. For $250,000 she should answer that question.

Her non-answers to everyone's questions says it all.

This is a scam......I hope the City Council realizes this.
