Hello Friends and Neighbors!
This morning we received confirmation from the Department of Environmental Conservation that Athens Stevedoring has officially withdrawn their application for registration to operate a C&D processing facility on our waterfront.
Thanks to all who got involved and made their opposition to this project known. But we’d especially like to thank the good people at Keep it Greene and Friends of Athens who worked so hard to bring this matter to the attention of local government on every level. We have no doubt that the diligence of these two organizations combined with opposition from the community was instrumental in pushing back this existential threat to our village.
Thanks to all and stay healthy!
