PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- As the battle over the future of Hill-Agor Farm wages on, Putnam County lawmakers at a meeting Thursday night considered pulling back a resolution passed four years ago that was intended to further the process of placing the property on the National Register of Historic Places, according to theexaminernews.com.
History buffs want the land revitalized through grants that can come only with being placed on the Register, advocates for youth sport counter that it would cut access to Airport Park, which is on the same road, theexaminernews.com said.
The county Legislature does not intend to place the farm on the registry and the 2011 resolution was done without all the facts, according to the Legislator Carl Albano, chairman of the Physical Services Committee, according to theexaminernews.com.
Legislators Dini LoBue and Kevin Wright disagreed with removing the resolution, the article said.
A vote to rescind the resolution will take place at the full legislature meeting next month, the examinernews.com said.
