Board Asks for More Details On Senior Citizen Housing Project by Ken Hamer TIle Honeoye Falls Planning Board met on Monday and several proposals were discussed and voted on. The Board gave approval to Greenleaf Product.~, 58 N. Main St, to begin construction on their warehouse addition. The company needs this extra storage to accommodate an increase in manufacturing at their other plants. Elliott Frank represented Greenleaf Products at the meeting. The next item on the agenda was the proposed senior citizen complex at Pine Trail. Representatives from Conifer Development, the firm in charge of the project, were in attendance. The complex, as it now sUlnds, would be a 2-story building with a tOUlI of 68 units and would be classified as congregate housing. This means that facilities would be available for the residents to gather together in groups for recreational activities. In addition, some basic services would be provided such as housekeeping, laundry, and even a ride to church. But the Board expressed concern because there was no mention of medical facilities in the plans. Conifer Development recently sent out a survey to area senior citi~.ens who might be interested in this type of housing. They found that of those who responded, most had several sources of income and would be able to pay the higher rent that goes with congregate housing. Those surveyed expressed a need for a certain H11101lnt of security while ut the same time mainulining their independence. Conifer Development hopes that their project will provide this type of atmosphere for its residents. The Board expressed its support for the development but it wants a definite plan set down on paper. The developers, the Board said, need to address the major items such as the lack of a medical facility and the terms of the lease. The Board passed a motion to allow the project to continue in its conceptual form and it expects to hear from Conifer Devc\opment at the next meeting. Finally, the Board discussed proposed plans for the York Street Subdivision. Negotiations arc on-going with property owners in the area and plans for a sewage/drainage system arc in the works. The new system would improve the drainage situation in the area. The planning will continue and work on the project will begin when all the Village agencies approve the plan. ..,j,j J \Better Education Is Everybody's Job\ is the theme of the Rochester Brainpower program--and the Monroe County School Boards Association agrees.
