Neighbors in Colonie to fight mall proposal

The group originally existed in the early 1970s as a social institution and an organization for neighbors to meet and interact, said Tate. This will be the first time the group has come together to take on local concerns, she said.

The association's stance on the existing fence company is mixed, said Tate.

The owners don't make much noise, they don't generate a lot of traffic and they don't light the night up.

"Is it gorgeous? No, but it's funky," Tate said.

The association is more than willing to work with a developer to revamp the property and would not object to a commercial building. But the group feels that the best interest of the neighborhood has not been represented through the initial planning and design of Loudon Square, Pugliano said.

The association has consulted with independent architects and is talking of retaining legal representation as it prepares to take on the proposal, said Tate.
