We have heard your concerns and we contacted the Town of Henrietta to gather more information. They were extremely responsive and helpful! We received multiple responses from multiple departments. Here is what we have found out!
Amy Englert- Admin. Assistant for Engineering Dept. "We have not yet seen a detailed set of site plans as of yet as they have not yet submitted for Planning Board approval. The applicant has applied for their Special Permit for multi-family housing in a PUD zoned district. They will go before Town Board for the Special Permit on 9/9/2020. Attached is the Letter of Intent and the planset for Riverton Parcel E for the Special Use Permit. The application for the Special Use Permit will heard at the September 9th Town Board meeting. They will submit a more complete planset when they submit for Planning Board. That planset will include utilities, drainage, landscaping, etc."
Stephen Schultz-Town Supervisor
"Nothing has been voted on yet. For either development being worked on in Riverton. We do not have finished plans, just their preliminary plans that they brought to a concept meeting. We gave them some feedback, asking them for revised plans.
The way this works under the Riverton Planned Unit Development is that before they can proceed, they need a Special Use Permit from the Town Board stating that their plans are in alignment with the original concepts and design goals of the Planned Unit Development. To do so, we intend to base it off of the following sources of information:
As part of that process, if there are things you would like to see, such as (and some of these I will be requiring):
I will note that in addition to the Special Use Permit, SEQR will also be conducted, so they will have to not create any unmitigated adverse impacts on traffic, the wetlands, drainage, character of neighborhood, and so on. The Town Board will be lead agency on the SEQR process with the Planning Board as an Involved Agency. I suspect a County agency or two will be either involved or interested agencies as well."
Tim Harris- Passero Group Project Manager- "You should be hearing from Park Grove, the applicant, soon. We are simply just getting the project started right now, and no decision will be made at the upcoming Town Board meeting in terms of approvals for the project. This is simply to start the SEQRA process right now. We are still in design and will be reaching out to the Riverton Group (Park Grove will). Hopefully that clears up some confusion."
Hello Everyone- We received this in the mail today along with many other residents and wanted to make sure to pass the information along! We have also enclosed the photo of the map showing where Parcel E is.
ast night we had our August BOD meeting and these are the highlights. Full minutes will be posted to the RCA website once officially submitted.
The Board officially welcomed it's newest member Kyle, and we are super excited to have a fresh set of eyes and ideas with us
~Finance stuff~ Our accountant found some charges that we were being billed for - and paying for automatically - on a credit card. This isn't necessarily new info, but we're still looking for info on what the charges are and how to get the account closed.
Lots of calls and emails about assessments and how we get the totals. In a nutshell, we look at last year's spending and divide that by the amount of homes...but we like to do things a little different by throwing in a mix of commercial, vacant, and multi-family areas. Short answer = there is a formula and now there's a spreadsheet.
~Contact Info~ We are still looking for updated and valid contact info for about 40 residents. If we can't get in touch with you by phone, email, or smoke signal...we can't keep everyone on the same page. If you know someone who says they don't get correspondence from RCA or Weichert, let them know why.
~Outdoors/Common Areas~ We had an inspection done on the pool structures, community center/office, and our storage area. All need work to get updated. Maintenance Reserve Fund - we are looking at you!
~Tennis/Basketball Courts~ Lots of non-residents accessing the courts and damaging the area. We're working on a key code solution.
~Featured Family~ This is a great new feature that we will showcase in future newsletters. Do you know a great family in Riverton? Are you a great family? Send us your recommendations for who you would like highlighted and why. We'll have that family send a picture and a bio, along with why they love living in Riverton. If you would like to nominate someone, tell us why and then we'll contact them for the rest. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
****A personal note from me.****
It was brought to our attention that 2 adult members of our community visited the pool and were not great neighbors. One registered, the other not. The registered party tried to convince the on duty pool supervisor that it was ok for the 2nd person to come in and then mentioned they (1st adult) were on the board. I realize there are a lot of sides to this situation, but the bottom line is we have regulations that all neighbors are asked to abide by: including the board. The board does not get special access to anything and frankly, wouldn't throw that info out there to get access. The pool is free to all RCA homeowners in good standing this year and all we've asked is that you register online ONE TIME, 24 hours in advance of your first visit. This is the type of situation that can get you and your entire family denied access to the pool.
I'd love to say that most everything else is actually going pretty great considering The Plague of 2020
As always, we welcome your comments, questions, concerns, and virtual high 5s at email@example.com
On behalf of the Board, ARB, office, and management team,
Thank you for your continued support!
Jennifer Braidotti VP of RCA
