I've seen this type of governmental response before - it's a "bought-and-paid-for" answer to special commercial interests in a desire to curry political favor and strength and raise more taxes, "damn the consequences and desires of the community".

Of course there's a way to control a community's development, just the way Saratoga Springs and Gloversville has, by establishing a downtown historic district and making renovations, demolitions, and facade changes subject to a historic board review. You can't keep a legal business out of your town, but you can control it's size and what it looks like on the outside.

Must be election time again, this is the only time Mike Gendron remembers he represents the Gloversville taxpayers from his county seat! That is all you can boast about in your Letter to the Editor today Gendron, after all your years on the county seat?? Take your rose colored glasses off and take look around..you have done squat to help Gloversville out!!! The only reason this man keeps getting re-elected is because no one runs against him, much like all the county supervisors!! Everything that is in the works at the County level will benefit one city and that will be Johnstown...railroad to Johnstown Park....acces road from Fultonville to Johnstown Industrial park...Revenue sharing agreement with land deal between Mohawk and Johnstown..need I say more???

what happened to "free enterprise" in this country? Do we have a government board dictate everything we do? The family dollar should be allowed in Northville, at present there is no law precluding it and the building that they are talking about demolishing has stood there vacant for five years or more on Main st. Maybe another fives years and it will fall down on its own. As far as the five and dime , I didn't realize it was up to the local planning boards to pick winners and losers or grant monopolies to certain business's maybe a little competition would be good for the residents. If the local government wanted to maintain the character of the downtown they should have had the foresight to enact restrictions on all parties and not restrict on a case by case basis

I believe that today will be a great day to go outside and put aside all this political arguing to clean up the yard, make Gloversville LOOK like someone loves to live here! Have a glorious weekend everyone!

Richard Russo Thanks for being a CHEER! You are a product of this community and we are proud of you. Let's all take a moment and remember to be positive every day. Thanks for remembering where you came from and giving back. We know you did not come from a privileged background and you are our success story. Think about it. There are very few success stories that come from people who have had an easy childhood. Success has a way of coming out of hardship. As long as we can channel that effort for positive results. Hmmmmmmm. This could be a start.

Northville residents could simply boycott the Family Dollar store if it is built. No profit, store will close. It is that simple. Family Dollar closes un profitable stores all the time.
