As residents of the Hill and Dale Country Club and members of the Hill and Dale Property Owners, Inc., we oppose the development known as Kent Manor, formerly Kent Acres, which is to be built on Nichols Street in the Town of Kent. Our property owners corporation met with the developerâ€™s representatives on July 16, 2005. The following concerns surfaced in our community following such meeting. We believe that these concerns MUST be addressed by the Town.
According to the developer, no environmental impact studies have been done since prior to the 1989 settlement stipulation.
The developer is planning to dump 25 million gallons/year of treated effluent into Palmer Lake. In a heavy rain, overflow will run into Palmer Lake, increasing the bacteria level to unhealthy levels, as happened in Lake Secor on July 19, 2005.
Apart from the specific concerns of Hill and Dale residents, the Town Board should also take into consideration the following points:
We look forward to your support in this matter.
In addition, subsequent to writing the letter I found out that
DEC is currently reviewing whether the it will treat the application for renewal of the SPDES permit as a new application, in light of the fact that the ownership of the property has changed hands
The site plan for the development has expired
