Terramor Catskills Resort makes official submission to Saugerties Planning Board – Documents within

Here are the documents submitted to the Saugerties Planning Board by Terramor Catskills Resort. These were submitted by the July 5th deadline for the July 19th Planning Board meeting.

The submission consists of 10 documents, 8 of which are contained here. We hope to add the final two documents later. one of the missing documents (#1) is a cover letter, and thus not so important. The other missing document (#8) is a large SWPPP (Stormwater Management) document which we hope to access soon.

Documents are available in a variety of ways:
We have archived them locally on this site (see links below)
We have a Google Drive here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1I7U4bM1e7wFXYMvHc6sqgeXZ48cL8Z1j?usp=sharing

These documents form the first basis for the Saugerties Planning Board to examine the development. The Board will also have input from their own Town Planner, consultants, and various other agencies. This is the beginning of a very long process.

Interested parties can use these documents to send letters to the Planning Board addressing technical (and philosophical) issues raised by the Terramor project, including potential claims of the trouble with Terramor over development.

  1. I’ll be looking more at this over the next day or so.
    But somebody help me out here. If they have 75 tents, some of which will hold 8 people, & we give them the benefit of the doubt that they won’t be at full capacity for the entire time, although I think they’ll be very close to it, and say 4 people per tent times 75 tents= 300 guests per night, for, let’s give them 150 days a year, that’s 45,000 guests per year. Even if we agree that many guests will stay for two days or more, that’s still around 20,000 guests in a 6-month period, coming and going through Terramor into the surrounding countryside, including Little Deep, Big Deep, the Sawkill, and local hiking trails, as well as over 100 cars per day coming and going. Even if there isn’t a mass exodus every morning and night, that’s a lot of traffic for this area over that short period of time.
    Also, consider the effect of around 300 guests every night.
    I think over development is an understatement.
