Please attend Thursday's 3/10 Schodack Town Board Mtg. 7pm at Town Hall, 265 Schuurman Rd off Rte. 9 & 20 across from the Schodack Plaza.

Basically, the Supervisor and Town Board are still not prone to being creative and aggressive on our behalf in finding and carrying thru on ways to oppose the locating of the NED pipeline and compressor station in Schodack.

In addition to the proposed location of the NED Compressor Station (CS) on Clarks Chapel Rd, just over the Schodack border in Nassau, there are13 potential alternative locations that are in varying stages of consideration for the CS in Schodack, Nassau and Stephentown. Some locations are more likely than others. The 2 most likely alternative locations in Schodack are in East Schodack and on Rte. 9 near Shufelt & Maple Hill roads.
