    Exactly, and that is why the developers want no height limits.

    However, I’d just like to point out that the overall cap on housing units (including apartments/condos) is 22,000 (see all versions of the master plan text, in the 11/25/14 version it’s on p. 9). However, the developers want approval for higher totals within the various planning areas, but would (currently) remain under that total cap.

    Like it makes a dime worth of difference at this point.

    And since that and other features of the plan can be amended by the developers with approval by the Town Board in future, and it would only take say 10 years or so for Chatham Park residents to get their people on the Board, the sky’s the limit, assuming of course that this project actually succeeds, which to me is in no way a given.

    Or at least that’s how I sleep at night.

      Thanks for your comment, Liz.
      You are absolutely correct in the maximum of 22,000 DUs allowed under the Master Plan. The higher number of potentially 28,000 DUs is from the Land Use Summary Table which describes a cumulative total of 27,970 DUs across all sections. With (but only with) the approval of the town board, the Master Plan would allow greater than 22,000 DUs. Sadly, by the time we get to 22,000 DUs, it would seem another 6,000 or so would be almost moot.
