Schodack is located (detailed town map) in the southwestern corner of Rensselaer County, New York. It's part of New York's Capital Region, about 15 miles by Interstate from downtown Albany.

Site and Time (change2): 7pm, 23 April, Greenmeadow School: Public information session re a Town Center study. (Flyer) Additional documents can be found at (Study details). Added information: Road Proposal Map   Please note, however, some study documents and flyers still refer to an earlier location and time. The Town Board, responding to residents' concerns, concluded that 7pm, April 23 at the Greenmeadow School on Schuurman Rd, will be more convenient and useful to those interested in attending this session and apologize for the need to change.
