GREENPORT — Will it be affordable housing, a homeless shelter or a transient motel?
A plan to renovate the former 25-room Sunset Hotel in Greenport by the Galvan Foundation is expected to raise concerns among residents and officials ahead of a county board meeting to be held next week.
The Columbia County Board of Supervisors will hold a meeting Jan. 16 at 5 p.m. at 401 State St. to outline Galvan’s plans for the site. Galvan wants to renovate and rename the Sunset the Galvan Civic Motel.
The Galvan Foundation is partnering with the Columbia County Department of Social Services. Social Services did not respond to multiple calls for comment Wednesday and Thursday. Social Services Commissioner Bob Gibson will speak at the Jan. 16 meeting.
