Also in attendance was Tom Alworth, Executive Director of
the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development and representative
for the newly-formed Catskill Preservation Coalition, whose
eleven members include most of the state and region's top
environmental organizations, including the Natural Resources
Defense Council, the Sierra Club, Trout Unlimited, Theodore
Gordon Flyfishers Inc., Hudson Riverkeeper, Friends of Catskill
Park, Zen Environmental Studies Institute, Inc., the New York
Public Interest Group (NYPIRG), Catskill Heritage Alliance,
the Pine Hill Water District Coalition, and the Catskill Center.
The Coalition is seeking to participate in an upcoming adjudication
hearing on the project set for May 25 in Margaretville, where
it wants to challenge statements made in a 6,720 page draft
environmental impact statement submitted by the developers
and challenged in the New York City comments released on April
Gitter was present with his Crossroad Ventures project manager,
Gary Gailes, and attorney Dan Ruzow, who had served as one
of two lawyers for the Coalition of Watershed Towns during
the lengthy battle and subsequent negotiations that led to
the formation of the CWC in 1997.
The CWC was set up, under the 1997 Memorandum of Agreement
(MOA) brokered by Pataki between Upstate communities and New
York City, " to protect the water resources of the New
York City Watershed west of the Hudson River, while preserving
and strengthening communities located in the region"
according to its own website description. It was funded with
an initial influx of $65 million, since amended, to initiate
and run a variety of programs aimed at maintaining local water
quality and helping to induce responsible development.
The 65-page report submitted by the New York City DEP to the
state last week states, bluntly, that the city, "believes
that the proposed Belleayre Resort at Catskill Park does not
embody environmentally responsible growth consistent with
the spirit of the MOA." More succinctly, it states that
Gitter's DEIS, however lengthy, is filled with "errors,
inconsistencies, data gaps and flawed logic" and that
the DEIS, and Crossroad Ventures, has failed to provide any
alternatives to its plans as required under State Environmental
Quality Review Act (SEQRA) laws.
"Unless the analyses in the DEIS are substantially improved
and demonstrate that the impacts of the project as proposed
or a reasonable alternative project have been accurately quantified
using complete, consistent, and accurate underlying data and
fully documenting the measures through which the impacts are
mitigated, the Applicant has not discharged its duties under
SEQRA that all potential significant environmental impacts
have been adequately identified, analyzed and mitigated,"
the comments state. "As such NYCDEP is not, and until
such steps are completed would not, be able to issue findings
in support of the project or approve permits pursuant to its
independent regulatory authority over stormwater discharges
and wastewater treatment at the site. NYCDEP is concerned
that it would not be able to issue permits for any of the
alternatives that had been considered by the project's sponsor
because our current rules and regulations do not permit post-development
loadings to exceed pre-development levels."
Gitter's presence at the social hour preceding the annual
meeting was seen by many as an attempt to win over support
for what is now shaping up to be his project's last gasps.
He kibitzed with Alworth, Ward, and Gelber, with various members
of the CWC board he briefly served as an alternate to in the
late 1990s. Moreover, he huddled with Shandaken supervisor
Bob Cross, Jr. and Ulster County CWC representative Ward Todd,
the former Chairman of the Ulster County Legislature and Shandaken
Republican boss who owns land with wife Jane, a Shandaken
councilwoman, adjacent to Belleayre Resort projects.
Cross later showed off a copy of the city's comments that,
like similar copies held by Ruzow and Gailes, had a specific
reference to the MOA highlighted with yellow magic marker.
"Among other things, all parties to the MOA agreed to
the principle that responsible growth and development should
be promoted in the NYCDEP watershed if pursued in an environmentally
responsible manner consistent with the protection of water
quality," the highlighted sections read. "Development
was to be encouraged in town centers with supporting infrastructure.
Growth was not envisioned as appropriate on steep slopes or
at locations outside of population centers on large tracts
of undeveloped land with mature forests."
Reporter Jay Braman, Jr. of the Daily Freeman and Catskill
Mountain News, which covers the town of Middletown into which
the proposed resort will spill, said that he had gotten a
call from Gitter on the morning before the meeting bringing
up the highlighted problems. There was talk that Ruzow had
called his fellow Coalition for Watershed Towns attorney Jeff
Baker about the clause, and to see whether the Coalition,
still around for pressuring the city on issues where a clear
consensus of disfavor could be found.
"I just told the commissioner that we're going to have
to have a meeting to sit down and talk about some issues I've
uncovered in the city's comments," Cross said after first
speaking with Ward, and then in a closed door session with
Middletown supervisor Len Utter. "I have some serious
questions about what they've written and what it says about
development in the Catskills. I'm also planning to talk to
Pat Meehan about all of this, as well as other town supervisors
in the watershed who might like to hear about what I've found."
Meehan is the executive director of the Coalition of Watershed
Towns, and was not present at the meeting. Similarly, he did
not answer repeated calls from the press about the Gitter
project all week.
CWC President and Coalition founder Perry Shelton said Tuesday
that although Gitter had come to him and the CWC board on
several occasions about his project, there was nothing he
"And I don't think the Coalition is planning to do anything
either since this doesn't really involve any towns directly,"
Several other CWC boardmembers who still attended Coalition
meetings likewise noted that they didn't think the Coalition
would take up Gitter's cause because there was no concensus
of support for the project, and actual opposition to it from
"It's too controversial," Shelton said.
"We're all working with the city on projects," CWC
Vice President Mike Flaherty said. "Meehan's up to his
ankles in a new sewer system-"
The CWC's other vice president for economic development, Todd,
did not speak publicly at all during the annual meeting, or
a subsequent monthly meeting held Tuesday.
Other talk on Tuesday focused on the release, earlier in the
week, of a letter from the influential Coalition to Save Belleayre
to DEC Commissioner Crotty asking that she not link the ski
center in any way with Gitter's project.
"The pioneering ski center has been in existence as a
state entity since 1949," Coalition to Save Belleayre
founder and president Joe Kelly wrote. "Its future is
not and should not be linked to the issue of the resort project
any more than any other private project in the Catskills or
State of New York for that matter."
For his part, Gitter refused comment to the press.
An April 23 press release from his PR spokesperson, Fred Winters,
was headlined "City Agency Declares End To Further Development
In Catskills In Defiance Of Watershed Agreement; City DEP's
Views On First Major Project Under Agreement Threatens Era
Of Upstate-Downstate Cooperation" and spoke of city efforts
to "derail" what Gitter had proposed as an example
of "environmentally-responsible development."
"The DEP has effectively torn up the MOA and declared
war on the people of the Catskills," Gitter was quoted
as saying. "By its actions today, DEP threatens the future
livelihoods and standard of living of every working family
in the region. We pledge to use every resource available to
us to convince the City to live up to its promise and reverse
the position they are now taking."
Ward, affable and friendly, spoke with the CWC board members
about ongoing projects and patiently explained to Cross that
its comments were directed to the Gitter project and not all
development in the Catskills. He later said that it was unfortunate
that he would have to play the role of the "bad commissioner"
who says no to Gitter's project, but it just wasn't right
for where it was being proposed at the center of the Catskills.
Ward added that the state, via the Department of Environmental
Conservation and the Governor's office, knew that his department's
comments would be strongly negative beforehand.
"It means they won't have to play the heavy in this,"
he said, later affirming that attempts by Gitter to speak
directly with Mayor Michael Bloomberg about his project may
During the meeting itself, both Ward and Gelber, as well as
the entire CWC board, were the recipient of numerous accolades
and commendations. "We are a partnership," Sullivan
County representative Georgianne Lepke said, pointing out
the great help given the Catskills by the NYCDEP.
Later, Gitter stood and addressed the board. After starting
with his own accolades about this "commendable program"
he lamented how some projects still managed to "fall
between the cracks." But instead of speaking about his
resort plans, he brought up how Mary Beth and Devon Mills,
the new owners of the old Rudi's Restaurant, last known as
Jake Moon, were running into trouble getting septic permits
from New York City.
"Could the CWC or Commissioner Ward ,oderate the severity
of what these young people are going through," Gitter
asked, with characteristic rhetorical flourish.
"We'll look into that," mumbled CWC Executive Director
Alan Rosa after Gitter sat down, looking somewhat deflated
after his attempt to rile up emotions against the city.
Someone mentioned, in the audience, how he'd forgotten to
acknowledge having sold the restaurant to the Mills for $185,000,
the price lowered because of septic problems.
Asked what he'd thought of the DEP comments and statement
about never permitting his client's proposed resort project,
Ruzow simply said "harsh," and turned around. After
a moment he turned back around and spoke a second time: "Unnecessarily
harsh," he said.
A similar question to Utter, the Middletown supervisor whose
town will also be effected by the life or death of Gitter's
dream, was met with a simpler response. He ran a finger across
"The range of reasonable alternatives for this site cannot
include a golf course," the New York Times quoted city
officials as saying in a stern April 24 story on the city's
comments. They then quoted Ruzow stating, "The city is
sending a very clear signal that there should be no large
project in the watershed."
"The intent of the city's salvo here is to pursue a policy
that there will be no economic development in the Catskills,"
Gitter later told the Daily Freeman. "This is an effort
to depopulate the Catskills," he said.
"The Belleayre Resort as currently proposed is unprecedented
in scale not just here in the Catskills, but throughout the
entire northeastern United States," said Alworth, countering
Gitter's attempted attack on New York City. "This project
will inevitably have significant impacts on environmental
quality, community character and the overall quality of life
in the central Catskills."
"Instead of 'smart growth' that can offer economic vitality
while still safeguarding the irreplaceable resources of the
Catskill Mountains, the proposed project is an example of
ill-advised development that runs counter to the region's
long-term environmental and economic interests," added
Eric Goldstein of the NRDC. "The premise that the city
does not want to see economic development in the Catskills
Funders for Gitter's project, as well as Crossroad Ventures'
previous developments at the Emerson Inn and Catskill Corners,
now renamed Emerson Place, have included Kenneth Pasternak,
Emily Fisher and Richard Fisher. Pasternak has since come
under investigation from Securities and Exchange authorities
for irregularities involving his former Wall Street company,
Knight Trading. Richard Fisher, who recently funded the Frank
Gehry-designed building in his name, has long maintained a
strong board presence in the environmental world, as has his
The next stage of the current review of Gitter's $250 million
resort proposal, which he claims has cost millions to get
to this current stage, will take place in the form of an "issues
conference" to discuss the parameters for further review
and adjudication by the state DEC set to take place in Maragaretville
on May 25.
"Mr. Gitter has no desire to speak right at this time,"
a last call to Crossroad Ventures resulted in.
The bill was designed to address an entirely different situation
than the one which exists here, he contended. In fact, he
noted, in tracing the history of Senate Bill J1316, the lawyers
discovered that the intent of the bill was spelled out in
the Sponsor's Memorandum of Understanding and included language
which specified that, in order for a school board to adopt
the reapportionment of school taxes indicated, all of the
municipalities in the school district concerned would have
to consent to it. Somehow, in the process of passage, the
Sponsor's Memo was left out of the bill.
"My understanding is that, when our lawyers asked (Sen.
Larkin) about it, he thought the memorandum was in there and
was surprised to find that the bill
passed without it," LaMonda elaborated. "A key part
of the history of the bill, concerning the intention of the
legislature, was to stop the wild swings in assessed value
due to sales of power plants, utility facilities, large enterprises
like that. (Senator William J. Larkin, Jr. R-C) has those
kind of industrial problems down there (in the Newburgh, New
Windsor area) whereas, reservoirs never get sold, so there
are no wild swings."
The Onteora School Board stated during its April meeting that
it intended to
act on the bill following the May 18th school budget vote.
This option would raise school taxes in Olive between 50%
and 60% after the state Office of Real Property Services re-evaluates
the Ashokan Reservoir properties owned by New York City.
Under the bill, which relates to a former bill, 1314, involving
equalization rates in school districts spread over more than
one town, New York City would continue to pay the same amount
of taxes as the largest landowner in Olive but their payment
would be equalized with other towns, leaving other Olive taxpayers
to make up the difference. Woodstock and Shandaken would enjoy
a 10% to 12% decrease, LaMonda points out, while Olive and
Hurley- wherein the City properties lie, would pay more.
"Only individual property owners take the hit,"
said LaMonda. "The reservoir isn't even adjacent to the
benefiting towns while all of its dams, labs, police departments
and maintenance buildings are within our boundaries."
While urging Olive citizens to make their concerns known to
School Board, LaMonda said the town was working in several
ways to counter the bill's impact, including an update of
property assessments and motions for repeal or amendment of
"I didn't realize it before we got involved in this,"
LaMonda said, "but apparently these big corporations
sell these power plants back and forth for tax purposes and
I guess the assessed values go up and down like crazy. It's
a business lever to get tax breaks. But of the 31 districts
eligible for this maneuver in New York State, only Onteora
and one other town has opted for it. And this has to be the
LEAST appropriate of the large parcel sites to do that."
Also on the ballot will be the proposed 2004-2005 budget of
Polling will take place from 2 PM to 9 PM. At approximately
9:30 p.m., the Onteora Board of Education will hold a Special
Meeting to canvass the votes cast. The meeting will be held
in the Cafeteria of the Onteora Middle-Senior High School,
4166 Route 28, Boiceville, at which point winners and results
will be announced.
Registration is by May 11.
Polling places are as follows:
District # 1 Town of Shandaken and that part of Lexington
(Greene County) already in the Onteora District. Polling Center:
Phoenicia Elementary School, Phoenicia. District # 2 Town
of Olive and that part of Marbletown already in the Onteora
District. Polling Center: Bennett Elementary School, Boiceville.
District # 3 Town of Woodstock. Polling Center: Woodstock
Elementary School. District # 4 T own of Hurley. Polling Center:
West Hurley Elementary School
Onteora administrators presented a revised plan for elementary
consolidation at the school board's April 28 meeting, stating
that all the students from the West Hurley attendance area
would be able to fit in the Woodstock school along with current
Woodstock students, while Phoenicia and Bennett students would
remain at their respective schools. Several parents who addressed
the school board were relieved to hear that their children
would not have to move across the district but were concerned
about issues of inadequate auditorium, gym, playground, and
parking space at Woodstock, which would house 400 students,
as opposed to this year's 281.
The Bennett and Phoenicia schools will have class sizes ranging
from 17 to 24, with Phoenicia's classes tending to be smaller.
Parents will be permitted to apply for variances to allow
their children to attend a school other than their designated
school. Variances will be considered based on class sizes,
with decisions to be finalized in July. Students currently
on forced variances from Bennett to Woodstock or West Hurley
due to overcrowding 3 years ago, will be considered Woodstock
students and will have to apply for variances to return to
Tom Rosato, age 53, lives in Shandaken and works as supervisor
of buildings and grounds for Ulster County BOCES, where he
heads the maintenance and custodial departments and oversees
construction projects. Two of his three children currently
attend Onteora schools, and his wife teaches math at the high
school. Rosato has been on the school board for almost four
years and feels his familiarity with budget and contract cycles
has provided invaluable insight for effective decision-making.
In fifteen years at BOCES, he says, "I've been in and
around the educational environment, and I know what's needed
to make education happen. My experience in facilities helped
the district get through the Bennett renovation project and
roofing projects, as well as issues with the heating plant
at the high school. I was instrumental in creating the Facilities
Committee, which I chair. We deal with issues that arise regularly
in terms of facilities. We have created a document that explains
everything about the facilities and their needs, to help the
board make decisions on infrastructure."
When asked whether the budget risks defeat due to the anger
of segments of the community over recent board decisions,
Rosato replied, "Yes, of course. I hope it doesn't, but
folks have interests that are very important to them. If they're
not being accommodated, they may vote no. But the board has
dealt with these difficult issues compassionately and, I believe,
properly, with the entire district in mind. I understand why
West Hurley parents are not happy, but when you look at what
losses would mean at upper levels, you can see it would hamper
students' ability to compete. I'm aware that we have a high
per-student expenditure, but I've looked at it closely, and
the areas to bring down are very small. We don't want to cut
electives, academic intervention, sports programs. In a rural
district, these are very important for kids."
Among the important tasks of the next few years will be ushering
in the new superintendent. "We have to have a stable
budget and a stable board so she can concentrate on educational
programs. I hope we can keep the culture we've created on
the board and with the administration, now that we have eliminated
the narrow-minded self-interest of past school board members.
We have a diverse group that works well together, and litigation
has dropped off to zero. I get a good feeling from this board
when we accomplish something. That's what makes it worthwhile."
His other goals include finding an educational use for the
West Hurley building and using the Facilities Committee to
help the newly formed Technology Committee upgrade computers
and other technology throughout the district.
David Patterson, age 42, lives in West Hurley and is a sales
representative for a Port Ewen-based communications products
company. He has a college degree in criminal justice and calls
himself "a very concerned parent of a large family"
of seven children, five of whom are currently in district
schools. At school board meetings over the last year and a
half, he has criticized the administration, opposing the West
Hurley closing and pointing out post-reorganization problems
such as the inadequacy of remedial reading staff at Woodstock,
a disparity that was corrected as a result of his complaints.
"In the ten years that I've lived here," Patterson
says, "educational equity has not been occurring in the
district in terms of resource allocation and functionality
of buildings." While the recent decision to consolidate
elementary schools is aimed at equalizing class sizes and
redistributing resources, he says, "That will help on
paper, as the Princeton Plan was supposed to work, but I'm
skeptical. As a parent, I was able to show the board that
the plans they had made did not meet the promises." One
of his goals as a board member is to ensure that the transition
does create equity among the elementary schools.
He finds that the board's recent decisions have divided the
community. "It's 'us versus them' at every level, and
that needs to be repaired immediately." He points out
that board members tend to vote unanimously on every issue.
"Two or three opinionated board members were against
the West Hurley closing at first, but their strong beliefs
changed so quickly." Dissatisfied teachers have told
him that they are afraid to express opinions or criticisms
and that they do not receive enough support from administrators.
He doesn't feel the board's communication with the public
is adequate, although it is slowly moving in the right direction.
Patterson believes the public's frustration will affect the
budget vote. "People don't feel they have any strength,
and this is the only way they can express themselves. A lot
of people say defeating the budget will hurt kids, but the
board hasn't worked on the budget except in a generic way.
I went through the budget line items and found $1 million
in cuts, not in programs or AP [Advanced Placement] courses
or afterschool, just things like administration and transportation.
There's no long-range planning. Every year, they put band-aids
on the budget when what they need is major surgery.
"The bottom line is, the children are most important.
But parents need to be more involved. The apathy in this district
is just a shame. I promise to do what I think is right as
Meg Carey, age 59, is a former teacher with a B.A. from Grinnell
College and an M.A. from the Bank Street College of Education.
She lives in the Town of Olive, and her two grown children
attended Onteora schools, where she was active in the PTA
and in site team shared decision-making, receiving the Jenkins
Award in recognition of community service to children. She
served on the board of the Woodstock Youth Theater and is
now in her sixth year on the board of education.
She says that supporting the new superintendent will be a
top priority, requiring a strong board that can continue to
work well with administration. "The district is now in
transition. We're making the best plan for consolidation of
four elementary schools into three, on top of last year's
reorganization, and this will continue for quite a while as
we deal with declining enrollments and the need to do more
on less money. Government keeps increasing its mandates, but
we anticipate no additional state aid for years to come. The
money issue is getting to be bigger and bigger, with no end
in sight. This is all under the umbrella of how to support
improvement of student achievement, which is always our focus."
Carey finds it is also important to "continue to work
on perceiving ourselves as a 'K-through-twelve' district and
not as five separate schools. The different schools tend to
be competitive with each other. Shared decision-making brought
parents of different schools together, and that was a big
change. Consolidation takes us a step in the right direction
so there will be consistency throughout the district that
parents and students can expect."
Regarding the budget vote, she expresses hope that "when
people step back and take a breath, they might be able to
understand the questions of equity the board is dealing with,
and that we have to look at the whole picture, not just with
the elementary schools, but with the large-parcel issue too.
I'm hoping people can direct their anger at the state and
federal level, where we're not getting proper support. The
board has been listening and taking time and trying to be
fair. We don't do anything in secret. I hope reasonable people
will be willing to support the budget. There are a lot of
concerns about change, but many teachers and staff were energized
by the reorganization last year and have risen to the challenge."
She is confident her experience will benefit the board. "It
takes so long to figure out how to be an effective board member.
I want to continue to offer my services. It's a very satisfying
is a born musician, a continuous improviser who's made his art his
life since the late 1960s, when he first came East from Chicago
drawn by the wildly eclectic sounds of Miles David and his famous
guitar henchman, John Mclaughlin. Of course, that means he's also
enmeshed in all the pains and tribulations, the slings and arrows
such a creative life entails - from charges of egomania to endless
criticism about what he's playing, from leaping through the countless
hoops one must jump through to book enough gigs to pay the musicians
one wants to jam with to sometimes having to rack oneself to find
the last shreds of enthusiasm to keep playing until that audience
you've always known is out there finds you.
We catch up with Johnny Asia in his small Phoenicia apartment on
a recent evening as he runs scales and builds new ideas out of his
patented delay playing. The music fits the term he's come up with
to define his sound: baroque. And devoid of his usual collaborator,
the local saxophonist and keyboard improviser Gus Mancini, -- not
to forget a much larger world of bassists and drummers, violinists
and woodwind players who he's played with over the years - there's
something starkly beautiful and mesmerizing about the Asia sound.
He gets to talking about being a teen in New York in the early 1970s
and catching everyone from Davis and Weather Report, Ravi Shankar
and Yehudi Menuhin, Larry Coryell and Jimi Hendrix to the cutting
edge of the avante garde, Philip Glass and Steve Reich included,
just when he was young and fresh enough to absorb it all. Learning
his chops and sitting in with the greats. Getting his own jazz-rock
sound together and seeing the edges of fame and success come into
view just out of reach.
And then a tragedy hit his family via a beloved sister's suicide.
He headed back towards home, now shifted to Kentucky and an extended
family without any appreciation for music, let alone creative improvisation.
Johnny Asia speaks of years spent housepainting, sitting in with
local blues players and soul bands, and endless solo practicing.
Honing that sound.
Eventually, the toxicity of his day job stymied his health and a
15 year period of recovery was called for. Asia kept making trips
back East to New York and its vicinity, still sitting in with the
greats, exploring his sound. By the 1980s the move was permanent.
He felt called north to the Woodstock area, eventually settling
across the river in Rhinebeck. Started playing around, getting both
accolades and jealousy from what he jokingly refers to as "the
conspiracy of mediocrity" that he describes as being endemic
to his work.
A love drew him away for half a decade to Connecticut where, true
to at least one strain of his luck, he caught a bad bout of Lyme
disease that he's still recovering from, five years later. But according
to the other strains, he just kept up his playing, his self-improvement
"I realized early on that this wasn't any road to happiness
I was on," Asia says, still playing in his apartment, the night
peepers joining him from outside his windows. "I knew this
was about other things."
Eventually, he felt called back to the Woodstock area, settling
in Phoenicia this time a few months after 9/11. He e-mailed some
people he knew in the area before making the actual move and had
gigs waiting for him when he arrived, guest appearances on local
radio stations, the usual rave reviews just waiting to be written
Asia and Mancini created a group they call the Woodstock Quantum
Ensemble, subtitled "Music for the Highly Evolved," and
started playing at the Knitting Factory in New York, and such newer
alternative spaces as The Evergreen in Fleischmanns. Word got out,
yet again, that something new was getting plucked from the air via
And yet, caught on our recent visit, the music practically flowing
from him like a river out of the mountains, Asia expressed frustration.
He needed more gigs to up the quality of his playing and match the
needs of the collaborators who wanted to make his gigs. He needed
enough to cover the cost of strings and picks and chords and what-have-you
involved in his long twelve-hour days of endless practicing and
experimentation, seven days a week. Moreover, he wanted a sense
of justification that what he was doing had merit. That he was in
fact hearing something, as he'd heard it since the age of four,
that was worthwhile spending a lifetime following.
In other words, he asked that same question Hendrix asked himself
when living in Olive up a deep holler one summer, that John McLaughlin
asked himself while holed up for a few years outside of Mount Tremper,
or going even further back, that Thomas Cole and Asher Durand and
Washington Irving's Rip van Winkle and Cooper's Leatherstocking
asked themselves. What has brought me here? How can I keep on doing
what I do?
We talk about widening the vistas to find gigs farther afield, the
easier to afford the life here, where Johnny Asia finds such nourishment.
About somehow attracting some of the filmmaking talent in the area
to hook into his sound, or sidestepping the growing need for middlemen
agents that even the smallest local venues are now asking for, complete
with press packets and other expensive doo-dads instead of the simple
drive and talent and living ideal of a musical life Asia, like so
many still making it in the area, fairly breathes with each of his

the music starts to speak for him.
