Saratoga Springs Mayor Joanne Yepsen said a
technical review team is going over the two proposals
for a multi-use project on the city-owned land
along High Rock, Maple and Lake avenues–currently
a parking lot–and she hopes to hear from
that group by the end of the year.
They are both expansive, multimillion dollar
projects that would–if eventually approved by
the city–result in a combination of shops, apartments
and parking spaces. Representatives of two
development groups gave presentations on Nov.
10 at a special City Council meeting. The projects
differ, but both specify parking spaces for Saratoga
City Center, the general public and residents who
would occupy the proposed housing.
Yepsen said Dec. 1 that the technical review
team was appointed by the council.
At the end of the November meeting, the city
council compiled a list of questions they want answered
by both development groups. The technical review
team did the same, and all have been sent
off and are awaiting comment. The mayor said the
same questions went to both groups.
