UTICA N.Y. (WUTR-TV) — Demolition continues on the former Sunset School in South Utica.
The Kelberman Center is a non profit that provides services to those with special needs. They are in the process of building a 60-unit apartment complex that will house 48 low-to-moderate-income units and the other 12 units will be for those with developmental disabilities.
Many residents that live adjacent to the footprint have expressed concerns to the Utica Common Council — asking for a compromise to build the facility smaller.
Robert Myers, Executive Director of the Kelberman Center, says the work was in the works for about two years. He says he walked around the neighborhood twice, knocking on doors.
On Tuesday, Louis Tehan, CEO of Upstate Caring Partners, says because of cold temperatures, there may be a delay to start building the foundation.
