Kind words for Mill Road apartment

Concept approval granted for six-unit project at Colonie Planning Board

— Ennis did mention some concerns, including “obnoxious light” that could come from the apartments and seep onto his property.

“I understand security’s an issue … I don’t want lights at three, four in the morning,” Ennis said.

Fazio responded by saying they could use downward lighting that won’t affect his property.

Ennis was also said nervous about the noise and garbage the new building may bring.

“I like the concept, I think it’s a beautiful structure,” Ennis said.

Board members agreed. Brian Austin said he approved of the barn-like design.

“I think it’s a great project,” he said. “I wish they all looked like that.”

Although the project gained concept acceptance, the developers will need to come before the Planning Board again to discuss waivers before they receive final site approval and can break ground.
