The Hamburg Village Board will next meet Nov. 3 to hear a presentation by a local developer who village officials say is proposing to build 300 apartments on 24 acres of land near Crownview Terrace and Foxcroft Drive -- near the Forest Glen neighborhood.
Village Administrator David Fountaine this week said that the developer, Clover Construction Management Inc., will give a presentation on its plans during the board's 6 p.m. work session on Nov. 3. The board is meeting that night in the Community Center on Prospect Avenue. The board's regular meeting will follow at 8 p.m.
Village officials say the company is buying the land from owner Sal Oddo. Details of the purchase are not yet known.
The project, in part, depends on whether the village will agree to abandon Canterbury and Areta drives -- both of which exist only on paper and were never developed. The area is zoned residential-three and the developer is looking to expand that development -- where a couple apartment buildings already exist, village officials said. Some of the roads in that area were started, but never fully completed and are more than 20 years old.
The board has scheduled a public hearing on the road issue for 8:15 p.m. Nov. 3.
The project has not come before the village Planning Board yet. Fountaine said it calls for 300 apartments, containing one-, two- and three-bedrooms.
The village still owns an additional 16 acres that are adjacent to the 24-acre site being considered for apartments. The entire area totals about 40 acres.
