$1.3 million

Deal to preserve farm near Saratoga Lake finally finished

Funding comes to buy development rights

A farm in the countryside east of Saratoga Lake will remain open land forever, under a deal struck six years ago that has finally become a reality.
The town of Saratoga on Thursday signed paperwork to pay $1.3 million for the development rights to 390 acres on Cedar Bluff and Wayville roads owned by John and Barbara Hoogeveen, using money from New York state and Saratoga County.
The transaction means the land can never been developed for uses other than agriculture. The Hoogeveens, who are in their 80s, are retired from farming and plan to sell the farmland, at a lower price because of the new restrictions on it, to local dairy farmers Marty and Pat Hanehan.
