COLONIE — Because of the spike in COVID-19 cases across the county, the town Planning Board opted to postpone its meeting Tuesday and hold a remote meeting on Dec. 8.
There was a busy agenda too:
- A request to extend for one year site plan approval for the Summit at Forts Ferry mixed use project. Construction of the three-story senior housing complex is complete but the two-story office building was delayed because of complications related to COVID, according to a letter requesting the extension.
- A request to conceptually approve the site plan for 79-foot, 5G cell tower on Elks Lane by Verizon Wireless. The project was introduced to the town in September and will be a “stealth” tower, or disguised as a pine tree. The Planning Board will still need to approve a final site plan before construction can start.
- The final site plan review to construct two buildings along Watervliet Shaker Road totaling 206,000 square feet to house a new Career and Technical Center and Maywood Special Education School for Capital District BOCES.
- Final site plan review of Ridgeview Meadows, a 22-lot subdivision on 22 acres of land along Loudon Road. The plan calls for access by an extension of Wetherby Court, a road constructed off Nottingham Way and another that will intersect Wetherby Court. There will be a public hearing for the project proposed by Benjamin Avery and Black Rock Construction.
