HARTWICK, NY – A public hearing was held Tuesday at Hartwick town hall for a proposed 4 story hotel.

Skyline Hospitality has plans to construct a Hampton Inn & Suites on route 28 in Hartwick Seminary.

Despite the packed meeting room, only a few people spoke out on the issue.

One of the biggest concerns was expressed by the Hartwick fire department.

They say they don’t have the proper equipment to provide proper fire protection for a hotel of that size, citing they would need a ladder truck for the 4 story building.

Currently, the Cooperstown fire department has the closest available ladder truck.

Melody Westfall, an attorney for Skyline Hospitality, says they are doing everything they can to make sure the building is up to codes.

“We’ve been working all along with the fire department. There’s been a constant dialogue between our consultants, our engineers, our architects, myself, to address all of their concerns, and to the best of our abilities, incorporate all of those concerns into our development plans.”

The sight of the proposed Hampton Inn & Suites is directly across from the Hartwick fire department.
