Connections: The debate over redevelopment at Cobbs Hill Village

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

The debate over a proposed redevelopment project at Cobbs Hill Village continues, after Rochester City Council tabled a vote on the issue last week. Mayor Lovely Warren submitted an amended version of legislation to Council last Thursday.

Developer Rochester Management wants to replace the current 60 apartments with 104 new units. Supporters say upgrades are needed, and the amended legislation would increase affordability of those new units. Those who oppose the project say the changes don’t go far enough, and redevelopment will result in a shortage of affordable housing options for senior citizens. They’ve filed a lawsuit against the city and the developer, among others, in state Supreme Court.

This hour, we talk to people on both sides of the issue. In studio:
