An environmental review of the retooled senior apartments project proposed for 375 and 391 Harris Hill Road is scheduled for Monday during a joint meeting of the Town and Planning boards.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave.

Natale Builders needs the parcel rezoned for the project, which calls for 150 senior apartments on 18 acres. The current zoning is single-family residential; the project requires multi-family residential 4 – the highest density.

An additional 20 acres of the site are wetlands.

A public hearing was held two weeks ago to gauge public interest in the project and it received favorable reviews. The apartments would rent for market rates.

The developer also is looking to build nine single-family homes on the site, although it’s not yet known if they would be patio homes with a private road.

The site contains part of the old Gipple farm, where the family cabin once stood. The cabin has been dismantled and moved to the Hull House & Farmstead for some form of restoration.

Also Monday, the two boards will review a site plan for Advantage Fitness at 6161 Broadway.

The Town Board then will hold a work session at 6:30, followed by a business meeting at 7.

This week:

• Charity softball games, to support community causes, will be held next Sunday at The Ponds, off Walden Avenue. Games begin at 10 a.m. and run throughout the day. Each team has contributed $200.
