Niskayuna town board OKs indoor recreation plan

"I don't like the idea of a steel building. I go by Afrim's and it is awful," said Fruend. However, she said that she hopes that the town can come up with something that will work, and that she thinks it's an "excellent idea."

"I'm just not in favor of the location or the steel building," said Fruend.

Councilwoman Julie McDonnell, head of the Education, Parks and Recreation Committee, offered her support.

"I am very pleased to sponsor this resolution tonight that promises a project that will serve as many as 500 children in Niskayuna," said McDonnell.

"With the Closing of Center City as an indoor recreation space, parents have had to travel to other towns and pay inflated fees for their children to play these sports," said McDonnell.

She said that she believes that it's the town's responsibility to provide an indoor recreational facility, but "with the current financial climate and our concern for property taxes," it's not possible at this time.
