26 November 2023 - Paving alleys between Glenwood and Parkwood Streets
Dear McKownville neighbors: The paving of the alleys between Parkwood and Glenwood Streets is now scheduled for Monday, November 27th. Biagio DelVillano from Delaware Engineering just got word from the paving contractor this evening that there is a last-minute schedule opening, and at this time of year it's especially important to take advantage of any day that the weather is favorable for completing the work.
If you receive this email before the paving work begins, it will be very helpful if you let your nearest neighbors know of the revised paving plan. It is also important that you avoid driving on the newly paved surface for at least a full day after the paving is completed.
Thank you very much for your patience.
If you have any questions please call or email Biagio DelVillano: (518) 610-2447 (mobile); (518) 452-1290 (office)
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

20 November 2023 - Paving of alleyway Schedule Change
Dear McKownville residents
Biagio DelVillano has just told me: We just heard from the contractor for the storm water project about paving of the alleyway. The paving of the alleyway has pushed to Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023.
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

19 November 2023 - More on paving of alleys between Glenwood and Parkwood Streets
Dear McKownville neighbors: Biagio DelVillano from Delaware Engineering asked me to let you know that you should avoid driving in the alleys for at least one full day after the paving is completed. This will give the asphalt time to cool and set up. All residents who customarily park in the alleys should park their cars elsewhere beginning early Tuesday morning. I let the Guilderland Police know of this circumstance so that cars parked overnight on the street should not be ticketed. If you have any questions please call Biagio at (518) 610-2447.
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

18 November 2023 - Paving of alleys between Glenwood and Parkwood Streets

Dear McKownville neighbors: Today Biagio DelVillano from Delaware Engineering let us know that beginning on Wednesday, September 20, American Evergreen will begin topsoil and seeding work associated with "backing up" the newly placed asphalt on streets in the McKownville Stormwater Project area. The work will more than likely be performed sporadically as the contractor's schedule and the weather allow.
Also, subcommittees working on the Guilderland Comprehensive Plan continue to meet, and all Guilderland residents are invited to attend. The Neighborhoods and Housing Subcommittee will meet this evening from 5:30 to 7:30 in the Westbrook Room at the Guilderland Public Library. All meetings are posted on the Town website.

Representatives from the McKownville Fire Department will update us on progress that is being made toward modernizing and expanding  the firehouse.
Finally, two MIA volunteers are serving on subcommittees for the Guilderland Comprehensive Plan Update: the Neighborhoods and Housing subcommittee, and the Environment, Climate Change, and Resiliency subcommittee.

23 July 2023 - Thanks for recent assistance from the McKownville Fire Department and the Town of Guilderland
Water from the frequent and heavy rains over the past few weeks has saturated the ground in many of our yards, and last week volunteers from the McKownville Fire Department worked for hours pumping water from the basements of a number of homes in our neighborhood.  We thank the members of the McKFD for their continual dedication in ensuring our safety and wellbeing, as well as the employees of the Town of Guilderland who responded to emergency calls.
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

22, 23 July 2023 - Bear(s) in the neighborhood
Dear McKownville neighbors: Apparently this is not the first time that bears have been seen in that area this month, and a neighbor on E. Highland Drive reported seeing a bear on her street at 7:30 this Sunday morning.
In order to encourage the bears to move on to a safer and more natural habitat for them, it's important that we discourage them from staying in the neighborhood as much as possible. Removing bird feeders for now, and wherever possible, storing trash bins in a garage or shed, are recommended.
Dear McKownville neighbors: Twice over the past couple of days a young bear has visited a yard on Fuller Road. Animal Control and the Guilderland Police have been notified. We hope that the bear and its mother will safely move on, but in the meantime please take in any bird feeders you may have in your yard and make sure your trash is secured in a garage or shed.

21 July 2023 - Message from the McKownville Fire Department
Dear McKownville neighbors: Please see the following message from the McKownville Fire Department.
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association
Hello Neighbors, We at the McKownville Fire Department wanted to reach out with couple of friendly reminders.
Recently, as you all know, we have had some pretty wet weather.  If does not seem like it's going to stop anytime soon, with more rain in the forecast.
We want to encourage everyone to check your basements to make sure they are dry, and to check that your sump pumps are in working order.
Additionally, when large scale storms arrive and we have roadway flooding, do NOT drive or walk through standing or moving water.  There are numerous reasons why this is not safe.
As always, McKownville FD and its members will always be here for the residents of the district and we are just a phone call away! Thank you,
Mike Costabile, Chief of the Department
McKownville Fire Department 518-489-4340

12 June 2023 - Repaving schedule: Norwood, Glenwood, Parkwood and Elmwood Streets
Dear McKownville neighbors: Today I received information from Delaware Engineering that you will find below this note from me.
Please note that the paving of Norwood, Glenwood, Parkwood and Elmwood Streets will be done by American Evergreen or its subcontractor.
The Town Highway Department will repave additional McKownville Streets later this summer.
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

The schedule for paving of the roads which have been affected by the McKownville Storm Drain Project is as follows:
Norwood & Glenwood Streets:  Mill and Pave 6/22-6/24
Parkwood & Elmwood Streets:  Mill and Pave 6/27-6/30
This schedule is of course weather dependent.
We ask that the residents of McKownville be as patient as possible during the paving operations as there will undoubtedly be some delays with moving vehicular traffic through these streets while the milling and paving is performed.  If needed, there will be backing up of the asphalt after paving is completed.
Backing up means if there is topsoil or something else that needs to be filled in behind the new asphalt it will be taken care of.
As always, please contact Delaware Engineering with any comments or concerns.

27 March 2023 - March 23 Association meeting summary
Dear McKownville neighbors: At last Thursday's meeting Town Supervisor Peter Barber told us that although highway department workers have picked up most of the debris from the recent storms, he expects that crews will come by one more time to pick up remaining branches. It is not necessary to cut up and bundle the storm debris, but branches should not be placed in the roadway.  Once the cleanup from the storms is completed, however, residents must return to cutting and bundling large branches.
Hazardous Household Waste may be dropped off at the Town Highway Department on French's Mill Road on Saturday, April 15, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Please note that paint, stains, and varnish should no longer be dropped off at the highway department.  Instead, a new paint recycling program (PaintCare) provides residents and businesses the opportunity to drop these materials at various locations.  In Guilderland, Sherwin Williams will accept the items, but it is recommended that you call before stopping by.  Further information may be found at this link on the town website.
On April 3rd, DOT will begin work on the new roundabout at the exit from the Northway to Crossgates. From April 3 to April 21 the northbound ramp onto I87 will be closed. Construction is estimated to be completed at the end of July.  Further information about lane closures may be found on the town website:
[pdf file info; pdf file image renderings]
On March 30th, from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m., a local ornithologist will lead a bird walk at the Community Gardens site on Rt. 146.  All are invited. Improvements at the Tawasentha Park Performing Arts Center will be completed in time for the summer season, and the new EMS station on Western Avenue should be open sometime in July.
Work on the Guilderland Comprehensive Plan Update has begun. The March 13 open house at Town Hall was very well attended.  Residents are encouraged to take part in the process, and meetings specifically intended to engage McKownville residents will be scheduled.
Town Planner Ken Kovalchik spoke about a number of projects that are underway in Guilderland, and outlined steps required in the planning process. Unfortunately, a number a proposed projects that would have provided affordable housing for seniors and other residents have been abandoned because grant applications were not approved by the State. At its March 22 meeting, the Planning Board approved the site plan for the Costco development, and it will now go to the Zoning Board of Appeals for further reviews. 
Beginning this week, Delaware Engineering and its subcontractor will be back in McKownville to complete work on the storm water drainage improvement project. Sidewalk and topsoil restorations will be completed. A contractor hired by DOT will complete work at the intersections and on sidewalks in the right-of-ways on Western Avenue. When all construction work is completed,  the Town Highway Department  will repave those streets in the project area that have not yet been done [Norwood, Glenwood, Parkwood, Elmwood].  The Highway Department also plans to repave additional streets in McKownville this year.  When those plans are finalized I will forward the a list of the streets.   
Please note that at the end of this construction season the Town will conduct inspections to ensure that homeowners have disconnected sump pumps from sanitary lines in their basements. 
Homeowners within the Country Club Highlands historic district will soon have the opportunity to purchases plaques to place on their homes.  Further information will be available soon.  We currently have $1,288 in our treasury. Many thanks to those made donations over the past several months!
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

15 March 2023 - Special Use Permit and Site Plan Review for Proposed Costco site
Dear McKownville neighbors: Town Planner Ken Kovalchik emailed me this link to a page on the Town's website regarding the proposed Costco development

A Site Plan Review Associated With a Request for a Special Use Permit is on the agenda for the March 22 meeting of the Planning Board.
Here is a link to the meeting agenda
The public is invited to attend the meeting at Town Hall or to view it on Verizon channel 34, Spectrum channel 1303, or through a link on the Town website.
As it happens, Mr. Kovalchik is on the agenda to speak at the March 23 meeting of the McKownville Improvement Association and he will be glad to answer questions on the Costco project, and other matters involving the Planning Department. Meeting flyers will be delivered to your homes over the next several days.

8March 2023 - McKownville stormwater drain project FAQ
Dear McKownville neighbors: An updated FAQ on the storm drain construction project has been provided by the Town and Delaware Engineering, which includes this summary of the work that remains to be done, to be finished this Spring 2023.
All of the piping installations are complete with the exception of a couple of yard drains. The work remaining consists of those yard drains, installation of concrete sidewalk panels where temporary asphalt was placed for the winter, asphalt restorations, and lawn restorations. Some of the asphalt restorations that will need to be completed are within the NYSDOT right-of-way, at the intersections of Parkwood, Glenwood, and Norwood Streets. We ask for your patience when these restorations are completed as this work will tie up these intersections for a few days. Traffic will be handled as efficiently as possible but this is not to say there won’t be delays in getting through.
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association

18 January 2023 - Winter parking restrictions on Town streets
Dear McKownville neighbors: Please be aware that the Guilderland Police have distributed notices reminding residents that parking on Town streets is prohibited between 2:00 AM to 7:00 AM, from  November 1 through March 31. This reminder is posted here on the Town website.
Compliance with this policy is important in assisting highway crews with snow removal, and to ensure the safe passage of school buses and emergency vehicles along our streets, and violators are at risk of having their vehicles towed.
Please be sure to park your vehicles off street for the next few months.

15 February 2022 - Plant McKownville
Plant McKownville LogoDear McKownville neighbors: Our neighborhood holds many attractions: lovely homes in a convenient location, agreeable neighbors, and access to excellent schools. In addition to these features, many of us were drawn here by streets lined with mature trees that provide cooling shade during the summer months and year-round beauty.  Over the years, though, we have lost many of our trees through the aging process, and others due to a variety of adverse conditions. 
With the goal of preserving and enhancing the beauty of our streetscape, a resident volunteer has compiled lists of trees and shrubs that can thrive in our neighborhood.  You may view these lists and a wealth of accompanying information by clicking on this link.
We hope that you'll find these materials interesting, and that you'll consider planting a new tree this year.  If you already have a healthy tree (or two) on the street lawn in front of your house perhaps you'll be intrigued by the thought of planting a new tree or shrub in your yard that will attract birds and pollinators.  Native plants are especially important because they are hosts to so many pollinators that are vital in supporting a healthy ecosystem. Spring is season of renewal, and an excellent time for planting a tree or shrub that can enjoyed now and by future residents of McKownville.  We're just at the start of what we expect to be a long-term new project for the McKownville Improvement Association and, we hope, for the neighborhood as a whole. You may count on hearing more from us on this subject over the coming months!     
Ellen Manning, President, McKownville Improvement Association
