CANANDAIGUA — There will be no vote this month on the preliminary phase 1 site plan for an estimated $100 million lakefront development project, as City Council requested that the developer make changes to the current plan.

The adjustments were discussed Tuesday during a Planned Unit Development (PUD) meeting at the Hurley Building. Before the five-phase development can move forward, it needs to pass through the city’s PUD process. Current discussions have focused on the first phase of the development, which will be located in the area near the combination Tim Hortons/Wendy’s on Booth Street and will encompass the current Scoops Ice Cream and former Polimeni’s Restaurant spots on Lakeshore Drive.

In October, City Council passed a preliminary site plan application for the initial phase, meaning the plan meant all the requirements of the PUD. The next step is to pass the detailed preliminary site plan.

During Tuesday's meeting, the biggest issues on the proposed plan concentrated on parking, the addition of a new street — named Northshore Boulevard — and stormwater drainage. Specifically, council members want developers to look into changes in the planned roadway configuration, along with adding a parking lot and possibly more pedestrian- and bicycle-safety features.

One change to the plan — which led Mayor Ellen Polimeni to applaud during the meeting — was the creation of a parking lot behind the Lakeshore Drive Hess gas station. Polimeni estimated this lot will have around 100 spots. Previously, this addition was going to be completed in a later phase; however, the plan is to now complete this task in the project’s first phase.

As for stormwater drainage, the plan is to use underground sand filters and a bioswale, developers said. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, bioswales are storm water runoff conveyance systems that provide an alternative to storm sewers. Project representatives explained that this method is needed partially because the project is on land that is part of a Brownfield cleanup program to remove hazardous materials.

During the discussion of water drainage, concerns about the project’s developer were mentioned.

Councilman David Whitcomb asked North Shore developers Morgan-LeChase — consisting of Morgan Management and LeChase Construction — about recent violations of Wisconsin environmental laws on property owned by Morgan.

“In October 2013, the Wisconsin Attorney General’s office announced a $85,000 judgment against Morgan Management for mismanaging wastewater overflow on property it owns,” Whitcomb said. “I just wanted to get more information from the developer, to make sure that doesn’t happen here.”

Developers present at the meeting didn't comment on the incident, aside from saying that wastewater will be drained through existing infrastructure.

Phase 1 will include the construction of a new road, Northshore Boulevard, that will run north/south from Routes 5 and 20 to Lakeshore Drive. Paula Benway, a traffic consultant from Stantec Inc., said this new street will help alleviate the burden of increased traffic on Lakeshore Drive.

After Benway explained about the new boulevard, Councilman Bill Taylor explained the need to increase pedestrian and bicyclist features to the new roadway. He asked Morgan-LeChase to add bicycle lanes to Northshore Boulevard, along with the addition of more sidewalks.

“Because of the traffic on Lakeshore Drive, and the pedestrian traffic we are going to have down there, I think [a sidewalk on the south side of Booth Street] is needed,” Taylor said.

Consultants on the project explained that because of the location of exits to two proposed parking garages — also on the south side of Booth Street — they didn’t feel it was safe to add a sidewalk in that area.

No action was taken during Tuesday night’s gathering. The next PUD meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the Hurley Building, at 205 Saltonstall St. in Canandaigua.
