Where we live: Grand Island

Grand Island

The Town Board will consider the site plan for Nottingham Estates, a three-building, 32-unit apartment complex on a two-acre property at 1995 Grand Island Blvd., when it meets at 8 p.m. Monday in Town Hall, 2255 Baseline Road.

Site plan approval also is sought for an expansion at the KOA campground, 2570 Grand Island Blvd., to accommodate six more campsites, and for additional outside storage at 2389 Whitehaven Road.

The board also will discuss the town code on tourist homes. No longer on the agenda is a public hearing on rezoning for the controversial 414-unit Light House Pointe residential project at Whitehaven and East River roads; it was canceled at the request of the developer.

A board workshop begins at 6:30 p.m.
