PUBLIC NOTICE: Public Hearing on Proposed Local Law No. 1 of 2015

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the Town Board of the Town of Nassau has introduced and proposed for adoption Local Law No. 1 of 2015, which establishes a new date for the annual meeting of the Town of Nassau Board of Assessment Review to hear complaints in relation to assessments (aka “Grievance Day”) to be held on and take place on the first Thursday following the fourth Tuesday of the month of May each year. This change of Grievance Day from the traditional fourth Tuesday in May each year is necessary in order to have the Town Assessor available for that day as is required by law. Pursuant to the proposed law, Grievance Day would take place on Thursday, May 28, 2015.


PLEASE TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that the Town Board of the Town of Nassau will hold a public hearing on the proposed Local Law No. 1 of 2015 on March 12, 2015, at 6:45 pm at the Town Hall located at 29 Church Street, Nassau, NY, at which time and place all those wishing to comment on the proposed Local Law will have an opportunity to be heard. Written comments will also be accepted at that time and place. A copy of the proposed Local Law is available for review at the Town Hall or on the Town website,

RPA Trail Network Vision Public Workshop
The Rensselaer Plateau Alliance is holding a public workshop to provide information and gather input on an exciting project we kicked off in the Fall to develop a vision for a region-wide trail network.  This trail network will not only serve the immediate Plateau communities but will hopefully someday connect to other trail networks beyond the Plateau. Guest speakers from a variety of regional trail organizations have been invited to share their experience in developing trail networks.  The workshop will be held Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 7PM at the Poestenkill Fire House (182 Main Street, Poestenkill, NY 12140).

RPA has received a grant from the Hudson River Greenway to develop the first phase of this project which is to collect data and map all existing public access trails in the Plateau communities and then develop a Vision for a region-wide network that includes identifying best opportunities, concerns and long range goals.  For more information about the project, please visit the following link:
Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs Program
The Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs Program offers free native trees and shrubs for planting along the tributary streams in the Hudson River Estuary Watershed, and is looking for new sites for tree plantings. The program is now accepting applications for Spring 2015 planting projects; applications received by March 1, 2015 will be given preference.  Program staff can help you with a planting plan and work with your volunteers on site.

Since 2007, Trees for Tribs has been responsible for planting more than 36,000 native trees and shrubs along 17 miles of stream with the help of over 7,500 local volunteers.  These plans help protect water quality, fish and wildlife and also reduce erosion and flooding.

For more information about the program, including project applications and fact sheets, please visit, or contact the Program's coordinator Beth Roessler at (845) 256-2253 or at
