Belleayre resort support strong at Middletown hearing

A large crowd — most solidly in favor of the proposed Belleayre Resort — turned out for Thursday’s Middletown Planning Board public hearing on the project.
Approximately 75 people were in attendance at the Middletown Town Hall to express their opinions on the planned resort in Highmount. The project, first proposed in 1999, currently includes two hotels, lodging units, a spa and a golf course. If approved, the Belleayre Resort would be built in both the Towns of Shandaken and Middletown. The Middletown portion would primarily include the golf course and related structures.

Storeowner Steve Yaekel said that he got a phone call at home at about 12:30 a.m. from someone who told him that the one of the store’s front windows had been broken out.

With demo day near, Shandaken farmstand owners file appeal

By Jay Braman Jr.
The owners of a farm stand on Route 28 in Mt. Tremper, that the state Supreme Court ordered removed, have filed an appeal of that verdict and are taking steps to apply to the Town of Shandaken for a permit to continue to do business.
On November 27, state Supreme Court Justice Mary Work gave the owners of Hanover Farms 60 days to take down their farm stand.
That gives Al Higley, and his son Alfie, until January 25 to remove the structure. But, with 10 days to go, the place looks just like it did on the day that Judge Work signed her decision.
