NOTE: If you can spare only one evening out of your week, please come to the Saugerties Planning Board Meeting on Tuesday the 19th. It is very important that we have many bodies in the room on Tuesday evening.

If you do decide to come on Monday, please eat the free food, listen carefully, and be skeptical.
Today, Monday July 11th, Terramor emailed an invite to many members of the community and concerned neighbours. The invite is for July 18th (the day before their formal presentation to the Saugerties Planning board.
This is an open invite. Even if you did not get an invite in your email (check spam and “Promotions” boxes), they say you are welcome to attend. Make sure to RSVP. One supposes that if a large number of folks respond, Terramor may have to move the event.
This will be a preview of the dog and pony show for the following night. But it should also include some new faces from their side. Possibly the manager of the Maine site also.
Given that we will not have the opportunity to ask questions of the engineers and developers at the Planning Board meeting the following night, this could be a good moment to acquire more knowledge and thus more points to use in our own approaches to the Planning Board.
Here is the text of the invite:
Dear Neighbors & Community Members,
Please join us on Monday, July 18, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to learn more about our plan submittal to the Saugerties Planning Board.

In order to continue our transparent and open conversations, we want to review the plan submittal, discuss findings from our studies, and answer any questions or concerns you may have prior to the planning board meeting.

We responded to the email from Terramor with the following email:
In response to this invitation. Given the increasing infection rate for COVID, I would like to know if there is a different venue in which to host this meeting. Many of the participants are older adults and at higher risk. This meeting should be in an open-air, well-ventilated forum, which Cucina did not provide, hence, we did not attend the first meeting in person. Although you attempted to have participation available, also, through the internet, the sound was awful, we could not see the boards/maps you were presenting. Could this, perhaps, be held at the Woodstock Community Center or Town Hall?
My husband and I are in the higher risk category, as I suspect some of the other participants might be. As you are aware, when we last met, outdoors for a walk through the property, quite a few of us were wearing masks due to those concerns.
