As you are well aware, the Hudson RiverBlack River Regulating District has declared war on the Great Sacandaga Lake's Back-lot access permit holders. Unless we fight back, a future owner of our property may be denied the permit segment we now holdunless the purchaser is an immediate family member. This will devastate property values. We must band together to oppose this attack. We urge you to join our newly formed Back-lot Owners Committee (BLOC). We must make the District accountable and include us in its Great Sacandaga Lake's Future.
And as you are well aware, the District is rewriting the rules and regulations governing the access permit system. The first meeting is scheduled for Jan. 31, 2006 for the review of the rules. We desperately need your support to attend these meetings. The first meeting will be held at the Northville School Auditorium at 6:30pm to 8:30pm. We need to be there to fight the readoption of the back-lot practice. Within the next few months, we will launch a petition drive and expect to receive enthusiastic support from both front- and back-lot property owners, as well as local businesses in our communities. Of course, we all won't be able to attend these meetings until this summer when we are all back at the Lake.
The regular January monthly District Board meeting has been rescheduled for Jan. 24, 2006. It will be held at Colonie Memorial Town Hall, 534 New Loundon Road, Rt. 9, Newtonville, NY 12210 at 9:00am. The February monthly Board meeting is scheduled for Feb. 6th at the Town of Northhampton Town Hall, 412 South Main Street, Northville, NY at 9:00am.
Please spread the word about these meetings to friends, family and/or any members of your associations.
We back-lot property owners are hardworking citizens and taxpayers. We deserve to be treated with respect and consideration for our rights. If we allow this to proceed, we are selling the hen house to the fox. Call me anytime with any questions or comments at 518-883-5388.
