No public support for development of Troy’s last riverfront forest, say Friends of the Mahicantuck

Troy’s last waterfront forest will be preserved as an ecological and cultural heritage site, if local organizers and Indigenous leaders can save it from a development proposed by Troy’s Kevin Vandenburgh. Vandenburgh is seeking a rezone to allow multi-unit housing on the 11.5 acre parcel, 10 of which lie in Troy’s Lansingburgh neighborhood and 1.5 in neighboring Pleasantdale. A runoff hearing before the Troy Planning Commission could be scheduled as soon as January 28th. HMM’s Alexis Goldsmith speaks with Jess Bennett of Friends of the Mahicantuck.
