The DiMarco Group on behalf of Rowley 96, LLC is requesting to develop a mixed use project on approximately 96 +/- acres located northwest of Lane Road and northeast of NYS Route 96. The project includes several phases of development. Phase 1 is anticipated to consist of a 132,200 sq. ft. retail sporting goods store, Bass Pro, with a 17,400 sq. ft. restaurant, installation of the stormwater management system, construction of access road and installation of utilities. The property is zoned commercial/light industrial and within the Route 251/96 Overlay District.
Currently pending before the Board is the development of Phase 1, however the State Environmental Quality Review process requires the Board to evaluate the potential impacts for the entire project.
Later phases are proposed to include a hotel, a mixed-use town center, multi-family residential complex and several outparcels. The proposed project includes associated site improvements including a combination of underground and surface parking.
The Planning Board received a revised draft environmental impact statement on December 22, 2014. The draft was deemed complete on May 12, 2015. A public comment period was initiated on May 12, 2015 and closed on July 17, 2015 which included a public hearing on June 23, 2015. A proposed Final EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) was provided to the Planning Board on August 23, 2016. The Board held advertised workshops prior to Planning Board meetings on September 13th, September 27th, October 11th, October 25th, November 9th, and December 6, 2016. A revised document based upon direction from the Board at the previous five workshops was distributed on November 30, 2016.

April 2019 Update
The Town of Victor Planning Board ("the Planning Board") by vote of 3 to 2 taken on September 25, 2018 at a regularly scheduled Planning Board meeting denied the Revised Site Plan Application ("the Planning Board's Determination") and thereafter the Applicant filed an Article 78 proceeding ("the Proceeding") in Ontario County Supreme Court for the State of New York seeking to overturn the Planning Board's Determination and the Planning Board opposed the Proceeding and the relief sought by the Applicant, and following the Court's consideration of extensive submissions by the parties and oral argument, by decision issued by the Honorable Frederick G. Reed on January 22, 2019, the Court overturned the Planning Board's Determination finding it was arbitrary and capricious and without basis, and the Court further indicated it did not believe there was a basis to deny the Revised Site Plan Application in the absence of the Planning Board identifying grounds to re-open the New York State Environmental Review Act process ("SEQRA") and making a SEQRA determination contrary to what was previously issued by the Planning Board in this matter.
The Planning Board seeking to resolve the Proceeding and any further associated litigation including any appeal of the January 22, 2019 Decision ("the Litigation") as referenced without incurring further litigation expense, and following discussions among counsel for the Planning Board and counsel for the Applicant concerning same proposed a resolution which adopted and approved in accordance with the conditions and other matters set forth the revised site plan application and also fully and finally resolved the litigation conditioned in Judge Reed approving the same on April 23, 2019.
