Plans were presented during the Town of Cortlandville Planning Board meeting last night for medical offices at 4057 West Road (Route 281), the former JM Murray Center Day Habilitation Center and Offices. Property own, David McNeil presented the plans to the board alongside the architect for the project, Alton Ainslie.
McNeil gave a brief of the plans for the project. The lot consists of 6 total buildings, with the project presented having complete work done on buildings 5 and 6 (the two most northern buildings). Plans are to bring in a medical office, though when the board asked who that may be, McNeil said he couldn’t yet disclose it.
The buildings would service for patient visits, regularly scheduled health care, sick visits, same day walk-in clinic, imaging and labs. Hours of operation would be 7am to 7pm Monday through Friday, and 7am to 5pm on the weekends. Twenty-five people are expected to work at the office.
Traffic McNeill said would be minimal with 16 to 20 patients per hour during the weekdays, and 20 total patients on each weekend day.
Asides work on the buildings, the parking area would be redeveloped with curbing, paved asphalt, landscaping and lighting.
The board all agreed the planned work for the project would be beneficial and had no doubt it was a great project. However, the planning board did express they would see additional details into the work including: landscaping, lighting, traffic, and building material drawings.
An estimated cost of the project was not revealed during the meeting. When asked when the office would be open, McNeil said he hoped one year from today.
Due to New York General Municipal Laws and the proximity to a State Road, the application requires to be sent to Cortland County Planning for review and approval. The board voted unanimously to send the application to next month’s County Planning meeting, where the additional details to landscaping and lighting may be provided by the applicant.
For the remaining buildings on the property, McNeil said they would eventually be redeveloped, but would be staggered. Currently two buildings on the property serve as warehouses to businesses.
