FASNY officials found about the decision shortly before the rest of the general public, Thompson said.
“I think everyone in the room was surprised, but it’s been a long process,” Thompson said. “Now, it’s going to be one week longer.”
Councilman John Martin said the decision to table the matter was made just before the meeting was scheduled to begin. That didn’t leave enough time for the Council to address the changes that needed to be made Monday.
“I thinkers members on the Council were commenting from when the document came out up through today,” Martin said. “After sufficient comments were in, it was decided that there were some changes that needed to be made.”
The Common Council still hasn’t said what changes or concerns needed to be addressed in the findings statement.
Kevin Clampet lives on Gedney Farm Drive, in the vicinity of where the school would be built. Clampet said the main concern he has with FASNY’s proposal is the amount of traffic it could attract to the area.
“I really don’t have a dog in the fight because I live in the outskirts [of the proposal],” Clampet said. “But it seems that if this is that up in arms against a project that’s going to be in their neighborhood,you would think the council that these people elected would listen to them.”----------------------------
