Where We Live: Amherst


Councilman Mark Manna wants the Town Board to go on record against variances sought by the developer of a proposed senior rental housing apartment complex.

Neighbors to the project at 1055 Youngs Road mobilized last week in response to news that Young Development has proposed turning a wooded plot of nearly 5½ acres bordered by the Park Place condominiums to the north and Treebrooke Court to the south into three 3-story apartment buildings with a total of 99 units, according to a site plan.

Manna, who is also a candidate for town supervisor, submitted a resolution for Monday’s Town Board meeting that also requests the members of the Zoning Board of Appeals reject the applicant’s request.

The Town Board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday in the council chambers of the Amherst Municipal Building, 5583 Main St., Williamsville. The meeting will be preceded by a work session at 3 p.m.

Also this week:

• The Village of Williamsville Board of Trustees will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Village Hall, 5565 Main St. The meeting will be preceded by a work session at 6 p.m.
