Written public comment on the proposed development of the former Westwood Country Club in Amherst will be accepted through Oct. 2.
A developer has requested the town rezone 141 of the 171 acres at the former golf course between Maple Road and Sheridan Drive for a mixed-use project.
A public hearing on the project's environmental impact held Monday by the Town Board drew well over a dozen speakers. All written comments will become part of the public record and will be considered as part of the final Environmental Impact Statement.
Comments should be sent to Amherst Town Board, Attn: Barry A. Weinstein, Supervisor, 5583 Main St. Williamsville, NY 14221.
A decision by the Town Board on the final environmental statement could come as early as Nov. 20. More info is available online at www.amherst.ny.us/misc/westwood.asp.
