Seneca Falls Town Board to resume battle over variance for Arcade Building

The ongoing dispute between the town and the owner and a potential developer of

the Arcade Building downtown will highlight tonight’s Town Board meeting.

The building, at 81-83 Fall St., is now owned by Jack Pross of Michigan. It is primarily a commercial building, with a single apartment in the rear of the street level floor.

Pross wants to sell it to Basil Vlahos of Ithaca for conversion to up to eight apartments on the building’s four floors.

The sale is contingent upon Vlahos getting approval for the residential use. He was granted a variance by the town Zoning Board of Appeals.

However, the town Planning Board opposed the variance.

The Town Board...voted in December to challenge the ZBA decision in court. [On the ground that] the residential use is inappropriate for downtown and would change

the character of the downtown, among other reasons.

They also claim there is not enough parking for an eight-unit building.

The town has hired attorney Steven Getman of Ovid to handle the legal challenge.
