The building would house 30 affordable apartment unit , and 50 apartment units for individuals with mental disabilities referred to the building by the New York State Office of Mental Health. There is presently a small retail strip mall on the site.
No application has been received to date, and the only materials relating to the proposal are attached to this posting. They consist of a booklet outlining what Transitional Services for New York, Inc. does, a “CEO Notification Letter” sent to the Mayor’s office without any further explanation (this letter is a notice that is required to be sent to the highest ranking elected official of a municipality when a project sponsor applies for State funding for a construction project of this type, and a letter written by the Mayor to the State regarding the application.
The Village Board is posting this material in order to make sure that the public knows everything that the Board knows with respect to this potential application.
