Residents of the Town of Gibraltar voted Wednesday to reject a proposed property purchase. The bold plan sought to buy 195 acres behind the Settlement Courtyard Inn off Highway 42 for over two million dollars. Supervisor Bill Johnson says residents had two main reservations against buying the Redmann property.
Besides affordable housing, single-family homes on 20 acres and multi-family housing were also explored. Over 400 people attended the meeting. The final vote was 180 against compared to just 51 opting for the plan.
