A Message from Supervisor Linda Puglisi
A message from Supervisor Linda Puglisi on the People’s Victory of the Port Cortlandt private project withdrawal today.
October 13, 2020
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents and families of Verplanck in this peaceful, historic and lovely hamlet for having the courage and the fortitude to stand up once again to a huge industrial project, AKRF’s PORT (Cortlandt) (200,000 sq. ft., 50 ft. high) that would have been extremely detrimental to their quality of life. Also, thank you to the surrounding area, their neighbors, who joined them in this fight (hamlet of Montrose, Village of Buchanan, etc.).
My philosophy of governing has always been to listen to the people not to the large developers, especially when their projects are in the wrong locations of our town.
I’m looking forward to working with our residents to plan together for our waterfront properties.
Linda D. Puglisi
