Wheatfield subdivision plan delayed

WHEATFIELD – The approval process for a proposed new residential subdivision on land owned by Bob Weaver Motorsports at Niagara Falls Boulevard and Nash Road ran into a delay at Monday’s Wheatfield Town Board meeting, when no one would second a motion to start the environmental review procedure.

Supervisor Robert B. Cliffe said the plan for the 23-home subdivision, also called Aubrey Way after a new access road to be built from Nash Road, is not complete. Cliffe said the town Highway Department is “adamantly opposed” to setting up the subdivision as a cul-de-sac instead of paving a turnaround that could be used by snowplows and school buses. Several neighborhood residents with a variety of complaints about the proposal addressed the Town Board Monday.

“It’s not a finished product yet,” Cliffe said. “We really don’t know what it’s going to look like.”

On another topic, Walter D. Garrow was reappointed chairman of the Planning Board. Garrow had resigned in August with the intention of being reappointed, but he had to complete a break in service to start receiving his state pension payments from previous jobs he has held. The Planning Board chairman is paid about $4,000 a year, Cliffe said.
