Public Meeting to Discuss Hamlet Park Renovation: Residents of Hillsdale are invited to a public meeting Saturday, Oct. 24 to learn about plans to reimagine and renovate the town’s Hamlet Park. The session will be held from 2 to 4 pm in Hilltop Barn at Roe Jan Park, which is one mile south of the hamlet on Route 22.   At the meeting, which will take place rain or shine, residents will participate in discussions about what types of activities, amenities, landscaping and other features they would like to see in Hamlet Park, which is located just southwest of the traffic light at the Route 22-23 intersection.    The session will be led by Chazen Cos., a landscape design and engineering firm hired by the town to come up with renovation plans. The talks at the public meeting, combined with results from a recent survey of residents, will help Chazen formulate a master plan that is expected to be ready by year’s end.

Land Wanted

The Hillsdale Housing Committee is interested in acquiring a parcel of land suitable for development as a small Habitat for Humanity project.

Habitat builds high-efficiency homes in a contemporary style, geared to working families. The partner families undergo a vigorous application process to show creditworthiness and need. They are then required to provide 300 hours of sweat equity in the construction process as well as paying a low-interest mortgage, real estate taxes, insurance, and utilities. No government subsidy is involved.

The ideal parcel we seek would be in or close to the village center, accessible to the sewer system. However, other parcels of at least an acre, suitable for a double house, will be considered as will an acre with an existing structure on it.

It would, of course, be best if the land could be donated or sold at a below- market price. The seller could then accept a tax benefit in lieu of the full market price. Consideration will be given to all suitable offers.

If you know of any land that might be available for this initiative, please call Janis Smythe at  (518) 325-4223.
