Voters Deciding Today On Shen Land Sale
Voters in Clifton Park in southern Saratoga County today will decide the future of 34 acres of undeveloped land that supporters want to see transformed into a park. In April, Clifton Park residents rejected the sale of the land owned by the Shenendehowa School District to a local developer. The developer had proposed using half of the land for a supermarket and donating half back to the town.
The district had intended to use the money from the sale to potentially purchase property in neighboring Halfmoon for a new elementary school.
In September, the town announced its plan to purchase the two parcels from the school district for $1.1 million.
If approved by voters today, the town will use the land for a park and open space.
