ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – The proposal is a request for an area variance to build 11 elevated duplexes containing 22 units, on Autumnview way in Southport.
The developers say there are no ranch-style duplexes or townhouses in that area. They also say it would give empty-nesters a place to stay–with the hopes of keeping locals, local.
The location wasn’t the only concern locals were vocal about during the public hearing. Other matters questioned pertained to traffic, rent cost, and especially water drainage.
If you have questions, comments or concerns about the duplex proposal–you can submit them via email to the board, now until January 29th.
