Yesterday, the Shenendehowa Central School District held a public referendum on whether to sell 34 acres of forest to a developer. The issue was very contentious and generated a lot of argument and activity. The Friends of Clifton Park Open Space ran a great campaign to vote “no” and thankfully the proposed sale was rejected by the voters, 5,442 to 2,323. There is hope after all.
A few weekends ago I took the opportunity to hike through the 34 acres that have generated so much passion and pride. Below are some of the photos I took.
