Pooler Development has requested a change in the general project plan for Timber Banks, the new development off River Road on the Cold Springs peninsula.
According to Bill Price, president of Pooler Development, the firm was originally going to build three-story town homes to match the three-story apartment complexes, which are located across the street, for aesthetic purposes. After considering three-story plans, it was determined the three-story town homes were not a feasible product for the development. Instead, the developer of the town homes came back with a two-story product, which requires a larger footprint since it is stretched horizontally rather than vertically. To accommodate the increased footprints, Price has requested a reduction in the setbacks (distance between the home and roads including a two-foot gutter easement) from 26 feet to 19 feet.
Price also requested a lot area and lot width change. The lot width request is a maximum increase of 65 feet to 155 feet and the lot area request is a maximum increase of 9,000 square feet to 14,000 square feet.
Town officials are referring the matter to the Syracuse Onondaga County Planning Agency and the Lysander planning board for recommendations. A public hearing regarding this issue will be held at 7:01 p.m. Monday May 11.
