Amherst Residents Angry About New Proposed Hotel
Residents in the Town of Amherst are pretty worked up over a proposed new hotel. Nearly 200 people showed up to a town meeting to try and convince the Zoning Board of Appeals not to approve a 6-story, 137-room Hyatt Place Hotel that would sit right behind the Lord Amherst in Snyder. The developer, Iskalo, is asking for 9 variances to the zoning ordinances, but residents feel it's too big of a hotel in too small of a space. The board will have a decision on the matter in February!
