A leading developer of student housing is trying to build a large-scale housing community for “young professionals” which would require a change in the area’s zoning. Residents have expressed concerns about the details of this plan, which would include a high volume of traffic in the once quiet and rural area, the addition of more student housing where it is not necessary, and infrastructure changes like retention ponds and a new sewer system. Residents of this area are committed to preserving the nature of this residential neighborhood, as its zoning originally intended.
“Friends for Responsible Vestal Zoning” is a nonprofit group of Vestal residents working to insure that the town of Vestal follows approved zoning plans as delineated in the Vestal code books and the proposed comprehensive town plan. This group insures that Vestal homeowners are protected from the encroachment of developers that want to change zoning laws to enhance their profit at the expense of town residents.
