Rothesay project still too dense

Rothesay town council wants the developer of a controversial condo project to go come up with yet another plan.

Councillors say the development proposed for Hillcrest Drive is a dramatic deviation from the municipal plan and they want the developer and staff to talk about something less dense.

A.E. McKay Builders was proposing a seven building, 60 unit condo complex aimed mainly at seniors…but it needs council to rezone almokst 4 acres of land.  This latest rejected proposal was already scaled-down from the original plan for nine buildings and 65 units.
