Questions Linger for Route 9 Development

MALTA – On Monday, the Malta Town Board discussed the “Shecky” development, focusing primarily on the provision of additional water service.

Nearly 50 single-family homes are under construction near the site. The town board is considering a proposed change to local zoning so that a mixture of commercial and residential space near Route 9 can be added.

Scott Lansing of Lansing Engineering gave a brief presentation on behalf of the applicant, Skecky Development LLC. He noted how Skecky is proposing a 2,500-foot extension of water lines south on Route 9 to benefit the hamlet of Maltaville. 

But town board members said the water line extension alone would not solve multiple water problems that exist in Maltaville. They also discussed legal complications related to the combination of private and municipal water supplies.
