AMHERST, N.Y. - A public hearing Monday night on a rezoning petition from Amherst residents ended without a vote from the town board.

There's a dispute about a boundary for a proposed high rise hotel.

Local developer Iskalo has plans to build the hotel in a Snyder neighborhood, right behind the Lord Amherst Hotel on Main Street.

The Amherst Town Board held off on taking action Monday night, and the issue was tabled until both sides can agree on where the boundary is.

This is the latest in a months long battle that has been argued in and out of court.

About two dozen people showed up to the meeting, adamant that they wanted the property rezoned with more of a buffer between their houses and the six-story hotel.

Amherst Town Council Member Mark Manna says he hopes both sides can come together over the next several weeks and get to an agreement about where the boundary actually is.  He said if not, he is ready to vote on the residents side on this issue.
