Ulster has extended the proposed hotel permit every year since 2019, with the most recent extension happening in April 2023. That extension had a provision that stated construction needed to begin by September 19th, 2023 but that hasn't happened according to the Daily Freeman.
Town of Ulster Supervisor James Quigley told the Freeman,
"Our town code says if you don't build within a certain period of time you have an expired permit."
