Former state Republican chair Sandy Treadwell left the North Country after losing the 2008 congressional race to Kirsten Gillibrand.
His “several hundred acres of land” in Westport have been on the market for more than a year.
Now the Valley News is reporting that someone may have big plans for the land. The article by Keith Lobdell notes that the town has contracted with an attorney to handle planning and zoning issues for the property.
Town supervisor Dan Connell told the paper that the project — he declined to disclose details –would be beneficial for the town as a whole.
“I believe that this would be a fantastic project for the town of Westport,” Connell said. “We are working with them through normal channels to make it so we can hopefully help this sale go through.”
