Campus Crest Application Withdrawn
Vote on Rezoning and Special Permit Cancelled
|From Supervisor Yudelson: This afternoon I received a letter from a representative of Campus Crest Development withdrawing their application for rezoning and approval of a special permit for an apartment project proposed for property located on East River Road opposite Linhome Drive.
Residents in the neighborhood of this project received a mailing from the town informing them of the Town Board meeting tonight (7 p.m.) and that I would be introducing a resolution to deny the rezoning and special permit. The entire Town Board had indicated they would vote in favor of that denial.
|Update from Supervisor
I had shared that information with Campus Crest and they chose instead to withdraw the application, which is their prerogative.
Because they have withdrawn that application there will be no vote necessary, so there won’t be a resolution regarding Campus Crest on the agenda tonight, nor will the Public Hearing be continued.
Thank you to everyone who participated in any, or all, of the multiple opportunities there were to present feedback on this proposal to the Town Board.

The Henrietta Town Code states that all trash cans and recycle bins must be placed in a garage, port or at the rear of the building so that the containers are reasonably out of view from the street.
Please make sure that you comply with the Town Code and store your containers out of sight other than when they are at the street for collection.
Thanks for your help keeping Henrietta neighborhoods beautiful!
