Rehabilitation Support Service Inc. will present a proposal to build a residential development in the Sixth Ward to city planners Wednesday night.
The Planning Commission will meet at City Hall at 7 p.m.to hold a sketch plan conference with the applicant.
Rehabilitation Support Service of Altamont proposes constructing a multifamily residential development located off of River Street, according to a meeting agenda. The proposed development would be a pocket neighborhood with a focus on moderate income/workforce housing.
RSS proposes a 64-unit development with eight buildings each with eight apartments, Mayor Gary Herzig said Monday night, and the project would be on five acres of vacant land. The proposal includes reserving 15 beds for residents documented to be in recovery from addition to alcohol or drugs, he said.
According to the agenda, the properties involved are owned by River Street Gardens, LLC, 166 Clymer St. in Brooklyn, and by the City of Oneonta.
The parcels are at 26, 28 and 30 Duane St., on West Broadway, Morse Street, Franklin Avenue and at 164 River St., and the zoning is residential, the agenda said.
Herzig withheld comment on the project until he hears more details.
