SNYDER, N.Y. (WIVB) - Though the Town of Amherst has continually backed Iskalo Development, that is not stopping Snyder residents from doing everything they can to halt a six-story hotel from being built in their backyards.
Snyder residents living in an area known as "Mike's Pond" have brought a court challenge to Iskalo's Hyatt Place hotel being built in an area near the I-290. So far, the Town of Amherst has sided with Iskalo, finding the area has been zoned for general business since 1976. And the town has allowed the project to go forward, despite residents' complaints.
But residents maintain they don't want to the hotel built in their picturesque neighborhood and that the building will be taller than what is normally allowed. Now their court challenge has temporarily halted the project.
