Segment B rezoned and Senior Housing projects moves forward

Last night at the Town Board meeting, the Town voted in a 3 to 1 vote (with Councilman Weiss absent) to approve the amendment to the Master Plan 2015 for Segment B. The amendment changed the Future Land Use map to allow for the extension of commercial zoning an additional 180 feet; beyond the existing 500 foot depth. It also approved the conversion of the existing Single Family Residential zoning of the remaining properties to Restricted Business. The Restricted Business creates a transitional zone between commercial along Transit Road and the existing residential neighborhoods of Kippen Drive and Highland Farms Estates.

At the same meeting last night, the Town Board approved the request by Clover Management for preliminary review and a special exception use permit for their proposed senior housing project at 8040 Roll Road (behind Jim’s Steakout). This means that the proposed project will now go to the Planning Board for review, comment, and approval.
