A lengthy process meant to guide future growth and redevelopment in Amherst may reach a critical point at a special Planning Board meeting on Thursday, June 22.
Board members will review proposed amendments to the town's comprehensive plan during a public hearing at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at Amherst Town Hall, 5583 Main St., Williamsville.
The amendments were developed as part of the Imagine Amherst planning process that seeks to reshape commercial centers in the town. Committees and consultants have spent months, with public input, working on the proposed amendments.
Details on the Imagine Amherst changes are available here: http://www.amherst.ny.us/govt/govt_proj_detail.asp?code=pro&neworder=16.
The Planning Board could vote as soon as Thursday night to recommend approval of the amendments. The Town Board has the final say. But it's just as likely the Planning Board could table the amendments for review at its next meeting in August.
