AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) - The Amherst Town Board is reviewing plans to transform the Westwood County Club.

The review process for the project will last at least a year, to give plenty of time for input from residents.

First, the Town Board would need to agree to rezone the area from what is now "recreational use" to "traditional mixed use neighborhood"

The Westwood Lake and Park plan includes hundreds of residential units, a hotel, a banquet facility..and 64 acres of parks, lakes, and ponds.
