The Town of Plattsburgh has a number of initiatives in progress and is actively pursuing new businesses.  A new Kohl’s will soon open at one shopping mall, and down the road sporting goods supplier Runnings is renovating a former K-Mart store.  Town officials are also looking at long-term Smart Growth plans to create a walkable sustainable community that links residential areas with the commercial growth centers.  Town Supervisor Michael Cashman, a Democrat, tells WAMC North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley there’s a high level of interest from a number of new businesses that have been scouting the uptown corridor.

During last week’s Plattsburgh City Council meeting, one councilor quizzed the mayor about developments in a lawsuit between the city and the neighboring Town of Plattsburgh.  Town Supervisor Michael Cashman says the town is countersuing the city regarding a Payment in Lieu of Taxes dispute in which the city claims the town has not properly paid the city its share of Falcon Seaboard payments.
