September 27 Comprehensive Plan Review Meeting Cancelled
The Town of Colonie Comprehensive Plan meeting scheduled to be held on Wednesday, September 27th at 6 pm has been cancelled due to illness. We plan to re-schedule the meeting in the near future and will post the new date once it has been determined. It is important to maintain the guidance provided by our consulting team throughout this process, so we will reschedule as soon as we possibly can.
The meeting will be open to the public. Public comment will be taken during appropriate time periods. Adopted in 2005, the Comprehensive Plan called for a review after ten years. The Town also convened a committee in 2010 that reviewed progress and milestones achieved during the first five years under the Comprehensive Plan. The 2005 Comprehensive Plan can be viewed here.
The Public Operations Center is located at 347 Old Niskayuna Road, Latham.

Town of Colonie Drone Usage Ban
On July 20, 2017, Town of Colonie park rules were amended at the request of the Colonie Police Department and the Homeland Security Department to ban the operation of drone model aircraft at the Crossings Park since it is located within five (5) miles of the Albany County Airport and is within Albany’s Class “C” airspace. Flying of electric powered model airplanes is still permitted at the Crossings. Gas powered model aircraft are, and have been, banned in all Town parks for some time.
