Details are sketchy, but the developer has requested to meet with a Canandaigua City Council committee next week
CANANDAIGUA — New information on the stalled Canandaigua Finger Lakes Resort development may soon be available.
Developer David Genecco has requested to meet with City Council’s planned unit development committee to present potential changes to the permitted use of the property, according to the agenda released by the city. The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26, at the Hurley Building on Saltonstall Street.
Genecco, when reached by phone Wednesday morning, said he needs more time before sharing details.
“We hope to be coming up with a workable financing plan that can accomplish the goal,” Genecco said.
City Manager Ted Andrzejewski said he will be meeting with the developer later in the week, but could not say what these potential adjustments to the plan are at this point.
But he said he sees this as a positive sign for the stalled development.
“It’s going to refer to some positive development and some potential for getting this project done,” Andrzejewski said.
Mayor Ellen Polimeni said she does not know the details as of yet but she is interested in hearing what the changes might be.
“The entire council is anxious for something to happen,” Polimeni said. “Any discussion we can have is a positive.”
Movement at the site of the former Steamboat Landing has been minimal in recent years. Last fall, a roof was placed over the skeleton of a structure, which also was seen as a positive sign.
This came after Dave Christa, a partner with Christa Construction, and Robert Morgan, a partner at Morgan Management, left a partnership with Genecco and his partner, Robert Murphy.
Christa and Morgan had joined the project after work stopped in July 2015.
As of now, the resort is proposed to have 164 guest rooms and 600-person ballroom for weddings and social events, a full-service spa, a pool and other amenities.
