Pittsford apartments OK'd 

A proposed apartment complex in the Village of Pittsford is a step closer to construction. On Monday, the Village Board voted 3 to 2 to approve the site plan and necessary permits for an upscale apartment complex at 75 Monroe Avenue, the former Monoco Oil site. | Mayor Bob Corby and Trustee Paula Sherwood voted in opposition, while Trustees Tim Galli, Trip Pierson, and Lorie Boehlert voted in favor. Corby and Sherwood say the project doesn't fit the scale or character of the village. | The vote was the end of years of negotiations between the board and the developer, a Mark IV subsidiary. | Many residents have pushed back against the project, saying that it's too big and that it's incompatible with the character of the village. Monday night, residents filled the 160-person room to capacity at Pittsford Sutherland High School where the meeting was held. | The proposal still needs approval from two village boards, the Planning Board and the Architectural Preservation and Review Board. The Planning Board will look at the project's layout and site design, Corby says. The APRB will review the architectural style, he says.
