Members of the town of Oneonta Planning Board tabled a decision Monday night on a plan for the Woods Edge, pending further information from the developer.
Trio Development Corp. of New York, based in Windham, is proposing either 41 townhouses or condominiums on a nine-acre parcel of land, located on County Route 47, said Joseph DeMicco, who represents the corporation.
DeMicco said the difference between a townhouse and a condominium is that a townhouse lets the resident own the lawn and the building. At a condominium, the person owns only the living space, not the lawn or outside items such as the roof, he said.
Karl Rech, chairman of the planning board, said the developers need to decide whether they will build condominiums or townhouses, figure out parking spaces and then present a final site plan for the board’s approval.
