The Winston Farm proposal in Saugerties does not call for blacktopping 840 acres. It does not require clear-cutting every tree. It does not mean Saugerties will run out of drinking water or that it will be unsafe.
This irresponsible propaganda is from out-of-town opponents, such as Catskill Mountainkeeper, seeking donations and headlines. The record must be set straight.
Winston Farm’s proposal focuses on creating jobs through tourism, entertainment, recreation and commercial/retail while providing much-needed housing. Specifics cannot be determined until in-depth studies on traffic, water needs, habitat and other potential impacts are complete. The Town of Saugerties is finalizing what will be reviewed.
