The city’s committee tasked with managing lakefront development will continue its discussion about the North Shore site plan Thursday.
The $116 million development plan spanning 21 acres at the north end of Canandaigua Lake will be constructed in five phases over the next few years.
Rochester-based Morgan-LeChase development company is planning to purchase the land for the project from current owner David Genecco. The plan is to break ground this year.
The developer’s final site plan for the first phase is what is currently on the table awaiting City Council approval. Phase one, to be constructed on the western end of Lakeshore Drive, includes a mix of retail stores and apartments.
At a public hearing held March 6, residents expressed concerns about the aesthetics of the structures based on the architectural renderings, which are available on the city’s website.
The city’s Planned Unit Development committee — which is composed of all City Council members — planned to take information from the public hearing, discuss any further changes to be made to the plan and bring suggestions to developers. City Councilman David Whitcomb said the council will likely make a decision on the final phase-one site plan next month. Their next meeting is scheduled for April 3.
Scheduled for today was the county’s Financial Management Committee meeting, where a presentation was scheduled about the PILOT Increment Financing Proposal, or PIF, for the North Shore Redevelopment Project, which the city and school district has already approved. Read tomorrow’s paper for a recap of that meeting.
Thursday's meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Hurley Building, 205 Saltonstall St.
