Halfmoon Historical Society Receives Charter – by Michael Bielwski

Halfmoon – This past Jan 13 the Halfmoon Planning Board meeting was packed with residents to take part in the meeting to consider the town’s latest development project.  The project under discussion was Princeton Heights, a major residential subdivision planned for off of Princeton Avenue and Manchester Drive.  Princeton Heights has been in planning for at least eight years.

For almost two hours, one resident after another took to the podium to voice opposition to the project, citing traffic, noise, water runoff, and the general erosion of Halfmoon’s rural image as their primary concerns.  Resident Margaret Sautter, whom was among the project’s most vocal critics, took some extra time to speak with The Express.
