Letters to the Editor

The Friends of Clifton Park Open Space wish to express our thanks to the residents of the Shenendehowa School District who voted to approve the sale of 37 acres of surplus land to the town of Clifton Park. The town now has the opportunity to engage the public in a planning process that will benefit the entire southern Saratoga County region. We look forward to this process taking shape in the near future.

We also wish to thank the many supporters who devoted their time and/or financial resources to support this vote.  It was the hard work of our citizens that led to this sale.

There is an old Native American proverb: “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” The results of the vote on December 5, as well as the result last April, have preserved this land for generations.

Frank Berlin
