Amherst residents who think the former site of Westwood Country Club should stay green can state their case Monday to the Amherst Town Board.
A public hearing on a draft environmental impact statement is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Amherst Town Hall, 5583 Main St., Williamsville.
Mensch Capital's proposed $250 million project, which requires rezoning more than 141 acres of the 171-acre brownfield site and converting more than 99 percent of it to neighborhood development or a multi-family residential area, has generated controversy in the community.
Monday's meeting comes four days after the town's Planning Board is set to consider the rezoning.
An August engineer's report found the project, as proposed, would run into an "unavoidable capacity bottleneck" in downstream sanitary sewers but added that sewage flows could be manageable with modifications by the developer.
