Belleayre resort support strong at Middletown hearing

A large crowd — most solidly in favor of the proposed Belleayre Resort — turned out for Thursday’s Middletown Planning Board public hearing on the project.
Approximately 75 people were in attendance at the Middletown Town Hall to express their opinions on the planned resort in Highmount. The project, first proposed in 1999, currently includes two hotels, lodging units, a spa and a golf course. If approved, the Belleayre Resort would be built in both the Towns of Shandaken and Middletown. The Middletown portion would primarily include the golf course and related structures.
