SUPPORT RESOLUTION DECLARING
A MORATORIUM ON REZONE ALBANY 

When? 7 PM Albany Common Council
Chamber 2d floor City Hall.  July 3, 2017

Council Member Mark Robinson (Ward 5)
will introduce the following Resolution for
a vote of approval from the full 15 member
Albany Common Council at their July 3rd
meeting. 

Rezone Albany opens up the remaining
prime residential single family neighborhoods
in the City of Albany to mixed use development.

This will destroy the neighborhood residential
integrity, quality of life, home values and City
property tax base in these single family 
residential neighborhoods, which pay the lion's 
share of property taxes which support
City schools and City government services.

A foolish move for a City on the brink of
fiscal insolvency.

All City residents will ultimately be adversely
impacted by the outcome.

Councilman Robinson can be reached at
221 7811.    RESOLUTION
                                                 Albany Common Council

WELL SAID?
Listen. Do you
agree?

 http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cynpooler/2017/05/21/dissatisfaction-among-democratic-party-committee-members-in-albany

Where and when is the
Albany County Democratic
Committee meeting? Monday
May 22?

Does anyone really care?

The elitist Democratic County
Committee is not the party of
Dan O'Connell.


Rezone Albany eliminated
the Dan O'Connell Pocket
Park at Whitehall and New
Scotland and two other
forever green spaces:
Krumkill at New Scotland
S. Manning at New Scotland
which were a result of my
leadership of the Buckingham
Pond Crestwood Neighborhood
Association.

Send a message to Kathy Sheehan
and her 12 political dwarfs on
the Common Council who voted
to approve her Rezone Albany
Zoning Code/Map, May 15.

Send them a message. Refuse
to sign their candidate designating
petitions and  do not vote for them
or other candidates running on
their team, in the September 12
primary.

CHURCHILL SPOT ON

Albany Times Union article by
Chris Churchill is spot on, one
of his best:

 http://www.timesunion.com/tuplus-local/article/Churchill-Asking-questions-as-Albany-thwarts-11119905.php

The 5 members of the Albany 
Common Council Planning
Committee should vote to
Table  Ordinance 26.31.17
Rezone Albany and hold
the bill in Committee until
a new Mayor and Common
Council takes office in
January 2018.

The Common Council Planning
Committee will meet to reconsider
action on Rezone Albany, May
10.

Committee Chair Dan Herring
sponsor of the ordinance should
strike the enacting clause of the
Rezone Albany Zoning Ordinance
and Official Map.

Chairman Herring has announced
that he is not seeking reelection.

Do the honorable thing Dan.
You hold the fate of homeowners
neighborhood residential integrity
and quality of life, home values
the City property tax base and
support for City schools/City
government services 

The implications of Rezone Albany
need to be thoroughly analyzed
understood and debated by voters
and candidates alike before the
party primaries occur in September
and the November 7 General Election.

To do otherwise will doom the
City of Albany to fiscal insolvency
resulting in the City of Albany
becoming Detroit on the Hudson.

Refer to earlier  posts on this issue
this website and 
http://lonerangeralbany.blogspot. com 

Voters government can't save you.
You must save your government, your
City and your homes.
