Poets Landing?

This is huge (I think that's 144 units total), and I hadn't heard of it before now. Anyone know more about it? I just stumbled on it at the Village of Dryden website.

The Village of Dryden Planning Board has scheduled Public Hearings for Thursday, December 2, 2010 at the Dryden Village Hall, 16 South St., Dryden. The purpose of the hearings is to review and take action on a proposed subdivision and site plan application for what is currently unimproved property situated at 111 Freeville Road/ Route 38, such development (entitled "Poets Landing") consisting of a total of 72 apartment units in 9 buildings, a community center, and a separate seniors housing building containing 72 living units. The project improvements include a private road network, private water and sewer infrastructure connected to the Village water and sewer systems, parking, landscaping and stormwater management facilities.

The subdivision hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the site plan hearing will begin at 7:00 p.m.

The full applications for subdivision and site plan approvals are available for review at the Village Clerk's Office, 16 South St., or at the Code Enforcement Office at 93 East main St. more info

1) How is that in the village? 2) Isn't that land owned by William George Agency?

Or maybe my Mapquest is off. . . . There was talk for a while about a housing development diagonally across from the HS. That talk went away for several years, but perhaps it's back.

It's already got a low-income housing credit application in the works, because 48 of the units will fit that jurisdiction:
The landlord looks to be a Rochester firm.

I'm still confused about the village's jurisdiction over this address. Any news?

It is, indeed, across from the high school. The owner is Rochester based Conifer Realty recently in local headlines with the development of Lindeman Creek in the Town of Ithaca.

My main question (aside from their federal subsidy and their affect on wetlands on the property) is how they will get water. As you know the village has had a moratorium on water connections for years because of the health department warnings of insufficient quantity of water. The only answer I've heard is that "It will be two years 'til they need to connect and maybe by then..."
