Cortlandville Enlisting Outside Engineer to Review Housing Project

Local News

The Town of Cortlandville will hire an outside engineer to review a proposed housing development that is looking to locate along Starr Road. Several residents raised objections to the project at a hearing this week.

Neighbors from Parti Drive, Isabel Drive, Abdallah St. and Levydale Park attended a public hearing Tuesday night on the Leonidas groups plans for a 66 unit planned housing development on a nearly 12-acre parcel.

Residents raised concerns about increases in traffic, noise, storm water run-off and flooding in connection with the project.

The developers, which include former Greek Peak owner Al Kryger, have proposed a development that features a mix of single family and two-family homes as well as some multi-unit apartment buildings. The property would be managed by a homeowners association.

The County Planning Board has approved the project with a number of conditions and recommendations.

The Town Planning Board must now decide if it supports a zoning change to accommodate the project.

Town Attorney John Folmer says the regulations for a planned unit development district are complex and the planning board has asked for help from an outside engineering firm.

Planners now have less than 45 days to make a recommendation to the Town Board, who will decide on the zoning change.
