Sally Wilber Memorial Trail
Sally Wilber Memorial Trail is open. Members and non-members of the YMCA are welcome to utilize the trail. There is no need to sign in. Open daily from dawn to dusk. If you have any questions, please contact the YMCA at 518-895-9500.
Access to the trail head is at the northeast corner of the building; where there is a sign for the Sally Wilber Trail. From there, follow the turkey tracks to a kiosk that has maps that guide you through just under a one-mile loop, featuring eleven educational stations. This trail does cross over the Normanskill creek so be aware of recent rain fall and possible high water.
The YMCA will monitor the creek and may close the trail if necessary. There is also an entrance to the trail off the sewer treatment plant (WWTF sign) road on Cole Rd.
This is a self-guided trail so please be careful and considerate. If you carry it in, please carry it out with you. The trail is pet friendly; dogs should be on a leash and please come prepared to clean up after them.
Keep Cars and Garages Locked!
In our Village Board meeting Monday August 9th, Lt. Geraci noted that there have been a string of car and garage break-ins in the Duanesburg/Princetown area and reminded residents to keep their cars and garages locked and not leave important items in the cars.
Clean Air is a Fundamental Human Right – Report Illegal or Nuisance Open Fires
It it prohibited at all times to burn garbage, trash, leaves, yard waste, or yard debris in Delanson. Burn barrels or free standing fires are completely prohibited in the Village.
Open fires may be fueled only by paper, paper products (such as cardboard), unadulterated wood, lumber and charcoal, however, no open fire or the emissions from that fire may create a smoke or odor nuisance to a neighboring property.
According to the DEC, fires cannot be left unattended and must be fully extinguished. Only charcoal or clean, dry, untreated or unpainted wood can be burned. Additional information on DEC’s open burning regulations is available.
To report an illegal open fire or a nuisance fire, you can call the Schenectady County Sheriff’s office, the State Police, the DEC hotline at 1-844-332-3267 or the local fire department. The fire department has the authority to extinguish or order extinguished any open fire being conducted in violation of any provision of the our local Open Burn Law. The DEC can only issue a summons if someone is burning garbage or construction debris. Have a copy of the Open Burn Law available for the Sheriff or State Trooper to read in order to identify the infractions.
