"Certainly, the change in zoning on this property would
have long-term, permanent impact on the district," said Spring in the letter. "As resources become increasingly sparse, these costs will add to the burden that the district has to shift to the taxpayer, something that we have always been very cautious of doing whenever possible."
Del Gallo said that the students on the property have the same education rights as any other student in the district. Del Gallo also said that after touring the apartments, he understands why Sync has not put any more money into the apartments until they know what they will be doing with the property, and would vote in favor of the zone change.
"I understand not putting any money into it [the property] until they know where they're going with it," said Del Gallo. "As far as I'm concerned, what I've seen I liked, but I'm only one member of the board. I can't make the decision for everyone but I can for myself."
The town board meets at 7 p.m. at the Rotterdam Town Hall.
