Residents need to speak up about project To the Editor on August As residents directly impacted by this proposed ambitious project, we sent a letter expressing our concerns to the Planning Board, the Mayor, and the Code Enforcement Officer of Watkins Glen prior to the Planning Board meeting of August 15, At that meeting, although Mr.
The latter is sorely lacking in Watkins Glen.
The representative also pointed out that there are some unused spaces at Jefferson Village, but this violates the code by which Jefferson Village was built. The issue of the three-story proposed building, which is in violation of current zoning laws allowing two stories, was not addressed.
Our letter indicated our views that the project does not meet the needs of the community at the proposed site according to the business transition zoning laws. Services will be overloaded as well with a building of this magnitude.
Apparently there was a written response to the board by the involved parties about our concerns; however, this was not made public when requested. We were told at the meeting we could voice our opinions at the public hearing, but no one could tell us when that would be.
We feel the decision will already have been made prior to the public hearing, so the point may be moot. Village officials seem to be providing a great deal of double-talk, and not for the greater good of the Village. Residents need to speak up and not wait until this project is approved and underway.
To the Editor on August They wanted and received letters of support, which included several from people who do not live or pay taxes in the town. My main question to the town board is this: Who will maintain all of this?
Will it be the town, and at what expense to the taxpayers? Who will mow it, dispose of garbage, maintain bathrooms, maintain roads? How about parking, security, insurance, legal fees? How will large numbers of cars get down the narrow park road for the tournaments the Schuyler County Adult Softball League plans on having there?
Will we as taxpayers be footing the bill when we cannot afford to fix our roads? The town needs a new excavator because the old one is broken and we cannot afford to replace it.
The town will need new plow trucks, but we have no money -- but we can spend frivolously on ball fields for the Schuyler County Adult Softball League? We are most likely looking at a tax raise coming up in order to maintain our roads.
Why make the increase more by throwing in the costly maintenance of 10 acres of ball field? We have not been mowing the roadsides for road safety in the Town of Catharine all summer because we have no mower and cannot afford a new one. So how can we mow 10 acres of ball fields? The town needs to focus on maintaining our roads and making sure the highway department has the funding to do so -- which right now it does not.
Then the taxpayers will be paying more. Sure, this grant is a lot of money and it seems like we are getting a lot for free, but it is just like a free puppy. We all know a free puppy is never free! It is with great sadness that I read about the demise of the Michael Watson Wrestling Tournament, an enormously successful annual winter-season athletic activity in the Watkins Glen community.Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
