If you've been following the controversial development project in Pittsford called 75 Monroe Avenue, there have been changes to that plan and a public hearing was held Tuesday to discuss them.

According to our news partners at the Messenger Post, the developer of the apartment complex wants to now put a restaurant and small number of residential units, along Monroe Avenue, facing the street. The  complex will be designed to look like a 19th century mill and the new plan includes more landscaping.

There was a lot of opposition to the updated plan at Tuesday's meeting which was held at Pittsford Sutherland High School. But the developer can't understand why and says the new plan is a big improvement over the original.

Chris DiMarzo, Pittsford Canalside Properties, said, “If there's not a resolution soon, we're prepared just to proceed with the plan that's already approved, however the plan that's already approved isn't as good as the current plan.”
