No News is Good News

Last night, the Board of Zoning Appeals did not issue a decision on the Fort Orange Club's application for a Use Variance, Area Variances and a Parking Lot Permit.

Nor did they issue a decision on the Northeastern Association of the Blind at Albany (NABA) variance to create a 21-car commercial parking lot which would require the demolition of two buildings.

I've been told that NABA is working on an alternative solution to address their parking needs.

Please join your neighbors in asking the Fort Orange Club to do the right thing for our community and our city -- urge them to consider an alternative site plan that will preserve the historic cores of these buildings and the built-up streetscape of Washington Avenue.
