Troy salt pile may be relocated

C.D. Perry, which owns the site of a large salt pile near the Poesten Kill, is considering relocating the mound to a South Troy industrial area, though the move depends “on rail access and a few other factors we wish not to disclose,” general manager Tyler Fane said in an email on Friday.

The Alt contacted Fane after city planning commissioner Steve Strichman, at a Troy Local Development Corporation meeting the same day, disclosed that the pending sale of a 4.34-acre, LDC-owned parcel near the Wynants Kill is linked to “the salt pile relocation.” Strichman had mentioned the prospective deal at past meetings this year without identifying the would-be buyer or the lot’s future use.

The sale still has not been completed, but the potential new arrangement will be reviewed by the city’s planning commission later this month, Strichman said Friday.

The 4.34-acre parcel, previously occupied by a Casale Construction-linked tenant that the LDC eventually sued over concrete stockpiles left at the site, is immediately south of a vacant, seven-acre property that is already owned by a C.D. Perry-affiliated entity, Troy Materials Group, LLC.

The potential layout of the new salt pile site—and whether it would involve one or multiple parcels of land in the area—is not immediately clear.
