ALBION – An organization proposing a 40-unit housing project on Liberty Street in Albion is seeking the Orleans County Planning Board’s support for the project.

DePaul Community Services, Inc. wants to build the project between the railroad tracks and Beaver Street in Albion. DePaul needs to remove three houses that are on that section of Liberty Street to make room for the housing project.

DePaul’s application for variances and a site plan review will go before the County Planning Board at 7 p.m. on June 28.

The 40-unit residential project is at 150 S. Liberty St. in Residential (R-3) District.

The Planning Board meets at the County Administration Building, 14016 Route 31 West in Conference Room C.

The Planning Board next week will also consider these referrals:

• Request for site plan review and special use permit in Gaines to operate seasonal business at 14386-14398 Ridge Rd. in Commercial Historic District.

• Request for area variance and site plan review in Gaines to convert existing structure to farm labor housing.

• Request for area variances and site plan review in Barre to operate an art studio at 4706 Oak Orchard Rd. in General Business District.

• Request for site plan review to operate wedding venue in Albion at 160 North Main St. in General Commercial District.
