Stop the Crossgates Mall Hotel Development

This petition had 77 supporters

The owners of Crossgates Mall (Pyramid Management Group) want to build a 5-story hotel on the Western Avenue side of the mall in a Westmere, across from the Jewish Cemetery.

The Guilderland Planning Board will soon decide whether or not to re-zone the area, which is necessary for the construction of such a massive building. This re-zoning should not be allowed because the hotel would only add more traffic, more congestion, more pollution, and a loss of green space.

Westmere does not need a hotel. It is a small, mostly residential suburb with only one-story businesses, and this 5-story hotel would dominate the landscape in a negative way, changing the nature of our area forever. We want our home, Westmere, to stay Westmere, not to turn into a highly developed, congested place.

The town has already approved a massive new apartment complex nearby, and this hotel will only add to the new congestion caused by the apartment complex.

Tell the planning board that you don't want the area re-zoned by signing my petition.
