Local contractor and developer Eric Biscaro is proposing an adult residential community, similar to his Clinton Crossing in Batavia, for a 20-acre site in LeRoy.
Biscaro tells the county planning board his plan would be similar to Clinton Crossing but 50-percent bigger. He needs a zoning change for the project that is proposed for a site along East Ave.
The plan cleared the Planning Board with some modifications. Biscaro says there is still a lot of work to be done before construction can begin.

Also approved was a design change for Ellicott Place, the 10 unit apartment project on the second floor of the Save-a-lot building. Contractor Victor Gaultieri was given the go-ahead to build outdoor patios for each apartment.
