AMHERST, NY - A controversial hotel planned for Snyder is now a go after getting final approval from the town planning board and local industrial development agency.
That's despite strong criticism from people who live in that area.
Iskalo Development plans to build a Hyatt Place Hotel right behind the current Lord Amherst Hotel on Main Street.
Neighbors have fought the project for months, saying it will ruin the view from their homes, hurt their property values, and invade their privacy.
The planning board approved the project by a vote of 5-2 last night.
The Amherst IDA voted 4-3 Friday to give the project a tax break package worth more than $1 million.
