We all thought Sergeant Schultz was so funny when he said this.
But it doesn't work at Town Hall.

WHY THE "BIG SECRET"?

Last year the town board met in "executive session", closed to the public, to discuss what they stated as "personnel matters" . Once in execuive session, they discussed selling the income stream from the town's cell towers to an outside company. They then voted to do it, never informing the residents of Stony Point!

sign law

A GOOD IDEA - OR OVERKILL?

Stony Point just passed a new sign law to deal with the proliferation of signs; political and business signs. Mostly a good idea, but it may be a major First Amendment problem - and illegal! We applaud the goal but believe more should have been done to protect everyone's rights. Read more...

THE WANDERING MASTER PLAN.

It took years for the old Master Plan Committee to come up with a page and a half of recommendations. The Town Planner expanded that to 20 pages. What's going on here, and what's coming next? —The "Public Hearing" on those recommendations on May 10. Read them here, the Town doesn't publicize it.

No Thinking

NO THINKING ALLOWED. Malloy's has been destroyed.

Can the town get any more out of touch with its residents, any less in touch with its own history and sense of place, any more lacking in economic foresight?

Or is this just "progress". How, then, do we define "progress"?

GOING ONCE, GOING TWICE...

Our last chance to save the historic Malloy's building. Once the center of town, once a $40,000 per year tax generator. Come to the Town Board Meeting 1/11/11 7 pm and make your voice heard!

Some ideas are good, but SPACE has concerns about some of them. You can read more here. Please read and consider, then come to the Public Hearing on Nov.30 and make your thoughts known!

Mirant Coal Ash Pile at Lovett

Stony Point continues to subsidize the "cheap" cost of burning coal by having coal ash, a potential "ticking time bomb"  buried onsite at the Tomkins Cove Lovett property, while questions linger about if or when the town or the NYS DEC will ever require the toxins to be removed. Read more...

The latest "Poop" on the Master Plan: The Supervisor has now farmed out the Master Plan to an outside company; this after his committee spent nearly two years coming up with a scanty page and a half of "suggestions" most people would consider an afternoon's work.

Who really runs Stony Point? Even though SPACE and a number of adjacent landowners filed an Article 78 Lawsuit to halt construction of the proposed ShopRite until a better (and legal) plan is devised. developer Pat Magee got they okay from his pals at town hall to start "grading" the land. But, what does "grading" consist of? And why isn 't there a signed map and a building permit? Take a look...

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. The Good is that the Ugly is now gone, and one of the worst polluters in the Hudson Valley has vanished. The Bad is that Stony Point no longer has the tax income from it - Mirant Lovett. Watch our video of the Lovett stack being demolished today at 10:00 am...
SPACE joins Hoke Drive residents in filing Article 78. The town board muzzled speakers during its public hearings on the ShopRite application. and largely ignored the written information supplied by SPACE. The only way to seek relief for town residents is to sue the town to compel them to overturn their ill-considered approval of the 93,000 sq. ft. shopping mall. Read more...

Wrong-Way Master Plan! The town board announced it's new Master Plan at the February meeting. Written by town hall employees, appointees and consultants - and two residents, with the rest of the town excluded. It took two years to come up with about 3 pages of suggestions, including giving unprecedented power to the Building Inspector - a very bad idea! Read the Draft here.
