Public hearing on large Rt. 28 fabrication plant scheduled for Monday, June 21

The Bluestone Wild Forest, three miles west of Kingston off route 28, comprises 3000 acres of hemlocks and oak, laced with 29 miles of gently rolling hiking and mountain biking trails, lakes, ponds and old quarries, making it ideal for fishing, hunting, trapping, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Within its borders lies one of the only publicly accessible lakes in the Catskills, Onteora Lake, a swimming and paddling mecca for nearby Woodstock residents. Now nature lovers find themselves at odds with a businessman who plans to build a steel and concrete fabrication plant adjacent to the forest and just 100 meters from the lake.

The Kingston planning board last week unanimously approved a permit amendment for the Hutton Brickyards property at 200 North Street in Kingston. The move will allow the owner to move forward with additional hospitality facilities, including new cabins, a restaurant, a spa and a new entrance and parking lot at Lindsley Avenue.
