Successful Defense of Senior Housing Project on Behalf of NYS Municipality in Environmental Lawsuit 

Hodgson Russ attorneys represented a New York municipality in all phases of land use and environmental review for a senior housing facility in a sensitive environmental area.

Using sustainable design techniques, the project was sited to avoid wetlands impacts and preserve important open space. Drainage improvements for the subdivision also alleviated problems in adjoining areas. Habitats of species of concern were preserved, and the area's supply of affordable senior housing significantly increased. Our work included a successful defense of the project in a lawsuit brought in New York State Supreme Court.
