Clifton Park town council hears horse farm subdivision plan

Dailey said while all the homeowners will be farmers, he does not expect all homeowners to own a horse. He said the developers considered using the stables on the land for boarding horses outside the subdivision.

The council said they could act as early as Monday, Aug. 4, on the issue.

If the Town Council adopts the proposal, the Planning Board would review the application and send it for final site approval. The final site approval would require surveying of the property to ensure that at least 60 acres of the 104 acres donated to the town does not contain wetlands.

Dailey said he was confident that 60 acres of the land for a permanent conservation easement is useable, but that he would get surveyors to look at the land soon.

Town Planner John Scavo said the developer takes on the responsibility and cost to survey the property and ensure that the land provided is useable to the town.

According to Dailey, the town already owns several parcels of land in that area that could be combined to make a larger parcel of land.""
