Planning Board Meeting On Text Amendment For Saratoga National Golf Course

Tomorrow night (Wednesday) at 7:00 pm the planning board will be meeting to finalize their “advise” to the city council on the text amendment of the city zoning ordinance for the conservation district (greenbelt).  The revised text eliminates all specificity for set back, size of the “hotel/clubhouse,” height, etc.  This raises the question as to whether such a facility can actually go into the conservation district.  The issues are many and the clarity is non-existent.  It will be interesting to see what the planning board which is completely dominated by the friends of developers will do.

There will be an opportunity for public comment.

  1. I went to the planing board meeting and you are right, John, when you state “It will be interesting to see what the planning board which is completely dominated by the friends of developers will do”
    Most of them drooled over the whole idea. It seemed to be pure politics of pro business and the concept of the city in the country went right out the window. One did not have to be a lawyer to see them going down the slippery slope of allowing a hotel to be built “in the country,” especially sense there are many hotels and places to eat in the city! Only two members voted against.
