THE ISSUE

We work to defend the land at 1011 2nd Ave in Troy NY from a proposed large-scale development. This land is a historically and culturally significant site for the Mahican Indigenous Peoples of the Mahicantuck River Valley (now know as the Hudson River Valley). This land — one of the last undeveloped waterfront properties in Troy — also provides a critical access to the water of the Hudson for the local communities, serves as important green space for the community and serves ecological refuge.


INSTEAD OF DEVELOPING, WE WILL CREATE A COMMUNITY PARK AND NATURE PRESERVE 

We demand that all development of this land is immediately stopped.

We demand that the members of the City of Troy VOTE AGAINST REZONING 1011 2nd Ave.
