ONEONTA- On Tuesday night, the Oneonta Common Council discussed a possible housing project that they believe will be beneficial to the city.

The common council talked about authorizing Mayor Gary Herzig to enter into an agreement with Parkview Development and Construction for a new housing project.

The agreement would authorize the sale of a portion of the Dietz Street parking lot for a proposed mixed use building that would include 64 housing units.

40 units would be affordable artist lofts for local artists, and the rest would be middle income housing.

Mayor Gary Herzig said the proposed project will help make downtown Oneonta a hub for the arts, which is one of the goals for the city's comprehensive plan.

"During the last two years we’ve been planning and we’ve been doing our homework. We did a comprehensive plan, we did a housing study, we did a a parking study, we had to study for art space and we have determined that one of the things that could really revitalize our downtown is artist affordable lofts where they can live and work," said Herzig.

Herzig says this is just the beginning.

The next step is for Parkview to present a site plan for review and complete a survey and appraisal of the property before the city can move forward with a purchasing agreement.
