Preswick Glen Information

Updated: February 17, 2009 - On February 13, 2009, Judge Samuel Hester rendered a decision that Preswick Glen is not tax exempt.  We are providing a copy of that decision... Click here!

Jerome Donovan has also provided us with an updated statement regarding the recent court decision...Click here!

Updated:  September 27, 2007 - At the September 12, 2007 Town Board meeting, the Town Board passed a resolution to amend the Agreement/Cost Sharing Plan for Preswick Glen Legal Fees.  Instead of the town paying 6%, as originally decided, the Town will now be responsible for 74% of Attorney Vincelette's fees.  The New Hartford Central School has hired their own attorney because they say that they have different interests than the town and county.  Be sure to read "There's Been a Change in Plans...".

Updated:  January 6, 2007 - On November 15, 2006, the Town Board authorized Attorney Gerald Green to contact outside Counsel with regards to the Preswick Glen development being constructed on Clinton Road (aka NYS Route 12B).  Be sure to read "After the Public & Press Were Excused".

We have had many requests for the Preswick Glen information so to help residents get a better understanding of the Preswick Glen Agreement and the events that occurred prior to and since signing the present Municipal Services Agreement (MSA) on March 24, 2004, we have added a page presenting the documentation provided by the previous Town Board.

In order to present both sides of the issue, we are also including an updated document "Questions and Answers" written by Jerome Donovan, a member of the Town Planning Board.  Mr. Donovan has raised many questions regarding the Presbyterian Home's proposed tax exempt status for residents of Preswick Glen and the Municipal Services Agreement between the town and the Presbyterian Home.

Whether you are for or against the tax exempt status for residents of the Preswick Glen, we encourage all Town of New Hartford residents to review both sides of the issue.
