>Senior housing project too ambitious, officials say

A proposal to rezone a 32.5-acre site at Clinton Street and Two Rod Road for a senior housing development has Marilla Town Board members concerned that the plan is too large for the town.

Landowner Leon Berner and developer and business owner Greg Willy approached the board recently to rezone land from agriculture to build 198 units of mixed senior housing, including condos, townhouses and apartments.

Board members said during a work session Tuesday night that they are concerned the cost of the $50 million project will stretch town services to the limit.

The developers noted that the project would have its own sewage treatment plant, private roads and arrange for garbage collection. Board members said they would like to see the project scaled back.
