Winston Farm to Take Next Step by Unveiling Development Possibilities

The owners of Winston Farm, a premium property ideally located adjacent to the Thruway’s Exit 20, are committed to investing in Saugerties’ future. Their visionary development plans will take the next step in the coming weeks: a thoughtful, detailed document outlining substantial economic benefits, job creation, housing opportunities and smart development possibilities.

Some outsiders, claiming to be environmentalists, are spreading incorrect facts about Winston Farm’s plans. In fact, Winston Farm’s owners, Tony Montano, John Mullen and Randy Richers, are committed to taking great care of the environment as development progresses. They also will ensure that plans adhere to the Town of Saugerties’ Climate Action Plan.

What’s next? That document, Winston Farm’s comprehensive Draft General Environmental Impact Statement, will be submitted to the Saugerties Town Board, which will oversee the municipal development-review process that lies ahead.

Winston Farm’s proposal offers numerous comprehensive benefits:

  • Vast potential as an economic engine generating several thousand jobs and significant tax revenue to benefit the town, Saugerties school district and fire district.
  • Preservation of a wealth of open space, and careful adherence to environmental protections, to protect the property’s rich history, habitat, wetlands, waterways, aquifer, natural gifts, beauty and charm – not just for today, but for future generations.
  • Amenities such as entertainment, recreation, commercial/retail, housing, tourism, technology and hospitality.
  • Ample housing options to help meet the strong demand in Ulster County, which like much of the Hudson Valley, has insufficient stock.
  • Local owners devoted to Saugerties. Montano, Mullen and Richers live and work in Saugerties and care deeply for their town. They are committed to closely collaborating with the Saugerties community and municipal leaders to ensure this destination will amplify pride and quality of life.
  • Innovative and sustainable construction, along with heating, cooling and water-saving technology.
  • Phases of construction that would see the development come to life over many years.

Winston Farm’s location, topography and scenic views led the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. to previously designate Winston Farm as the region’s prime development site. In addition, the Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce called Winston Farm’s plans “a visionary proposal that will powerfully energize Ulster County and the entire Hudson Valley as a deep source of culture, employment opportunities, tax revenue and housing for generations to come.”

Before construction can occur, the Saugerties Town Board will conduct a thorough review. And yes, your voice matters! The public will have numerous opportunities to provide input during the review process -- and community suggestions already have spurred modifications such as expanded property buffers and smaller lots for homes to enhance the setting of community.
