Most of the people of the village are unaware what the present administration is doing to our Village. They are giving developers the ability to build concrete monoliths throughout the Village while we are looking the other way. The “other way” are things like Music on Main St.and other special events for the people who reside in the village. The villagers enjoy the music and other events which makes the summer in the Village very enjoyable.
We were just informed that 26 buildings or sites, will be designated as historical sites. I will not call this a joke but it is an attempt to make the Villagers believe we are saving land era. No way. Its simply another way the Village administration is of trying to fool the public.
We are boxed in by a hotel at South Forest and the other end will be the Hirshfield-Richfield project which will contain a three story building with eight garages behind it for the 20 apartments. Then there will be a row of buildings with parking in the back of the last building. The Planning Board allowed for the developer to provide parking for 99 cars. The main building will abut the sidewalk, like the hotel at Main and South Forest.
The first ten sites were selected by the Historical Designation Board rather than the residents of Williamsville. The more development which is allowed in the Village the more we will become a hamlet of concrete never again a hamlet of peace and quite.
Please send me an e-mail or any other form of contact if you want to join me in trying to stop the flood of development set to happen in our Village.
