Demolition of old jail begins

Posted

Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan announced that demolition of the former County Jail has begun. At a ground-breaking ceremony at the site on Golden Hill, County Executive Ryan said the demolition of the old building is the first step in the process of transforming the site into one which serves the current needs of the community, addressing the urgent housing affordability crisis for residents. The property will be developed into 160 units of affordable senior and workforce housing.

The Golden Hill concept plan calls for approximately 80 units of senior housing and 80 units of workforce housing that are affordable at a range of 30 percent to 60 percent of area median income.
