Board approves subdivision regulations
New subdivision regulations have been approved by the town board. The changes pertain to the amount of developable space within the town, as well as any primary and secondary uses of new proposed construction.
"We have responded to all comments, and it has been a meaningful process," said Egan.
The work to complete the new zoning changes has been a year in the making, and economic development director George Leveille thanked staff for their efforts.
"We have definitely taken the code and made it better," Leveille said.
An application for a planned 220-unit senior housing project also received approval from the town board. A planned development district is being considered for the 91-acre VanDyke Spinney project. Developers would like to construct 1,100-square-foot senior housing apartments that will cost anywhere from $1,100 to $1,300 to rent. The complex may include walking trails and a community center if approved.
"I am very pleased to see affordable housing being created," said town board member Tim Gordon.
The project will now go back to the planning board for review or recommendation.""
