The City of Tonawanda Common Council will vote on the next step for David Homes' proposed Riverwalk Villas when it meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
A resolution calls for the city to act as lead agency for an environmental review and send the project to the Planning and Zoning Board to consider rezoning the vacant property from R-1 to R-2, as well as to review the proposed site plan and make recommendations.
The Common Council designated David Homes as the preferred developer of the 14 acres of wooded, city-owned land along Little League Drive, between Veterans Park and Fletcher Street last year and agreed to sell the property to the developer for $160,000 in February.
The developer has proposed building 95 townhouse-style condominiums there. This would be the first subdivision of new homes built in the city in about three decades.
No date for the next Planning and Zoning Board meeting was announced.
