On September 19th, the Town of Clifton Park and Shenendehowa School District, held a joint press conference to announce a conceptual agreement for the purchase of property owned by the District. The 34 plus acres of land was the subject of a public referendum in April of 2017. With a high turnout on an historical basis, voters denied the proposed sale of the property to a commercial developer, with over 70% voting in opposition. In the Winter of 2016, residents collected thousands of signatures in 30 days to force the referendum. Community interest and press coverage of the future of the property has been sizable for more than a year.
