Re: “Planning Commission approves revised plan for Cobbs Hill Village

Also I think this village within a park should remain forever a part of Rochester's historic land scape. I think it is very unrealistic to think that future generation politicians would vote to evict the seniors from their homes so the land could be transformed into park land. Can you envision the headlines in 2041: CITY COUNCIL VOTES TO TEAR DOWN COBBS HILL VILLAGE AND EVICT THE POOR SENIORS THAT LIVE THERE. Turning this land into park land will never happen. Keeping the current buildings and addinmg some new single story buildings is very desireable. A Village within the confines of a park that blends in with the park and serves low income seniors is a very desireable outcome.

Re: “Planning Commission approves revised plan for Cobbs Hill Village

I am a recently arrived resident of the Village, love the place as it is and am strongly opposed to the current plans. To tear down this wonderful cottage like residences and replace them with two 37 unit 3 story buildings for really poor seniors and build four townhouse two story structures designed for seniors that can afford much higher rents not only destroys the integrity of this village within a park but will almost certainly lead to conflict within the new complex. Rochester Management has behaved as if there are no rational plans for this village that do not include the destruction of the existing village. On the flag pole lot where they plan to build the first building there is room to build several single story buildins that match the archeticture of the current buildings. The apartment that I live in could be improved, made more energy efficient , kitchen and baths updated for far far far less than the projected cost of $275,000/ apartment that is projected by RM in their new plan. As a resident I beg any user of the park to encourage City Council to reject the current plan.

Re: “Cobbs Hill Village plan heads to a vote

I have been a resident since October of last year. I am totally opposed to demolishing my new home but would not object if RM would build one story buildings that reflect the design of the current village on the west side lot that currently is the home of a maintenance shed. This was the actual location of the wooden barracks that held the WW2 prisoners of war. A great place to live, I feel I am very lucky. RM needs to sit down in honest negation and in good faith with the collation if they want to proceed with minimal opposition otherwise they are bound to fail. WE WILL NOT BE MOVED! WE SHALL OVERCOME!

Re: “The long, long road for Cobbs Hill Village

I moved to the Village in October and I am very happy with my studio apartment. I am strongly opposed to RM plan to tear down my building. I feel I am living in paradise. There is a one-year waiting list for these apartments. Seniors in Rochester live in far worse housing. I love the unique exterior look of the buildings.
