BETHLEHEM - More green space is preserved in Bethlehem.

Local officials announced the move on an 8-acre parcel of open land near the intersection of Wemple Road and State Route 9W in Glenmont.

The deal came about through a partnership between the town and the non-profit Albany County Land Bank. It assures that the land-locked parcel in the middle of a residential neighborhood will remain wild and free from development in perpetuity.

For now, because the property is land-locked, there is no public access. However, that is likely to change sometime in the future. Learn more about that by watching the video of Dan Levy's story.
