Application for Rezoning & Special Permit Withdrawn
Update on Winding Creek Woods project
An application for rezoning and special permit approvals for an apartment project proposed for property located at the northeast corner of East Henrietta Road and Goodburlet Road has been withdrawn by the applicant. A public hearing on the project scheduled for June 5, 2013 therefore is no longer necessary and will be cancelled.
Since the time that this application was filed, the members of the Town Board and I have heard from many of you who own property near this property that have concerns and questions about the project. Many of your concerns were the subject of discussions I had with the Town Engineer and the Planning Board Chairman and also with the Town Board.
Update from Supervisor
Based on our discussions and your feedback, it seemed that there were significant obstacles for this project as submitted and therefore I recently contacted representatives for Morgan Acquisitions, LLC and suggested that they withdraw their application.
On Thursday, May 23 I did receive a letter from the attorney representing Morgan Acquisitions withdrawing those applications for rezoning and special permit approvals. I would like to thank Mr. Morgan for his responsiveness to this request and the concerns of the neighbors. Thanks also to those of you who contacted the Town to share your opinion.

Town Code Changes
Changes to the Town Code are now in effect that were enacted upon the recommendation of the Code Update Committee after Public Hearings on the proposed changes.
The changes prohibit parking on the grass in residential areas and restrict driveway expansions.
Let’s Keep Henrietta Beautiful!
The Henrietta Town Code states that all trash cans and recycle bins must be placed in a garage, port or at the rear of the building so that the containers are reasonably out of view from the street.
Please make sure that you comply with the Town Code and store your containers out of sight other than when they are at the street for collection.
Thanks for your help keeping Henrietta neighborhoods beautiful!
